We are all different - hence my posing the question as to whether a
theme manager may be a good idea so we can modify the look and feel to
suit ourselves. Imposed ideas are not always a good thing (think TIFKAM !)

An option to test radical GUI changes (and this is) should be available,
with opportunities for feedback (I didn't see any)

I never liked the colours - the green is absolutely awful (and there are
plenty of others who have said the same) but I could live with it.

The double vertical is just insane - I can't think of anywhere else that
uses it. It just grates every time I look at it. There is no separation
from the first column.

We are all used to a vertical column left, and a horizontal row, in
multiple programs (think say email programs, file managers, and just
about anything else).

With wide screens there is no need to try and cram everything to the left.

If double columns were a good GUI choice you would see them everywhere,
but you don't, which means GUI designers the world over consider them a
bad design and do not use them.

Anyway, I guess I am in a minority of one and will be ignored.
