haha - no worries Husse, I see you answering alot of posts about the same things. No offense taken.
Don't underestimate the importance of the whole aesthetic side of things - it may be a little superficial, but alot of people are drawn in by the looks. I quite like the Fedora 9 boot sequence - very nice to look at. Of course, then I remember how frustrating it is to use - trying to install codecs, even getting the internet connection running was a mission.
