Yes, why not. People like those olds, ever thought about that? I don't
get why everything that has been developed in the last years has to be
removed just because a handful of artists say its outdated. After all
we're still doing it for the users and the people that like the old
stuff are users as well. Sure make the new shiny stuff the default, but
let the users that want it have their beloved "ancient" thing easily,
without hunting it down on kde-looks or somewhere else.

Sure, but if some users have their own coherent themeing for their
desktop let them have it. You can't force somebody to find your art
cool, nice, beautiful,.. by removing the stuff he wants to look
at/listen to.


You're being followed.  Cut out the hanky-panky for a few days.
