Who needs window borders when you can use the keyboard for everything?
Incidentally, why did MS take away colour customization from XP+? I thought that was really cool. Especially when I changed my friend's PCs to black text on a black background.

that's probably the reason they took it out
So how do you help the guy who is stuck with 256mb of ram because his kind of ram is no longer made? It is not like someone is missing a legacy driver. To tell hnim to further reduce functionality by going for some weirdo OS that can run on 64mb ram and meanwhile not being able to use any application?Well... you're obviously missing the point of Linux because people will always help each other if a hardware is no longer supported.
Don't get me wrong, I never said you should always rush to get the newest, shinest machine,--this is what many gamers do and I find that completely wasteful, though because of that others can get cheap and fairly new second hand PC. But technology has a life span and you can only go so far to accomodate outdated technology. I remember someone was complaining that Lucid (or maybe even Karmic) no longer support floppies. Hello? Unless you are like a car manufacturer who got stuck with some multi million dollar machine which was state of the art 20 years ago who still would use flobbies, let alone trying to boot a modern OS from floppies? The only thing floppies are good for is to put your coffee cup on.
Do we still build roads along highways to support horse and buggy transportations?

only thing I ever do on all my Gnome GUIs is make the task bars transparent, turn on the extra desktop effects (I like the wobbly windows), and change the background...im set
If I could figure out how to get the icon to disappear when a drive is mounted, i'd like that too, I like having no icons. Even on my windows machines, I'd even hide the Recycle Bin via GPO, I hate icons.
