yeah but your argument was about making an easy transition from windows no?
and given than microsoft as made significant efforts to make users not see it 
i guess the argument falls a bit, as Joe user as not seen that specific theme 
or windeco in over 10 years.

(BTW i don't think the windows 3.1 style is the worst e have in the batch, and 
even if we would take it out of default aperence land we would not make it as 
hard to find as microsoft does  :) )
