GNOME

+ - One click desktop metamorphosis magic?

Submitted by

linhares writes "Ghandi once said that "First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win." We have been dreaming for years for the year of Linux on the Desktop, and even as Vista flopped, it is yet to materialize. Perhaps one way towards Linux on the desktop is to make it configurable by anyone, not only by geeks. That is precisely the idea behind the relatively new (and in need of eyeballs) epidermis project: to create a single-click desktop metamorphosis magic. A single click would "change the wallpaper, alongside GTK, metacity, icons, splash, usplash, cursor, grub and GDM themes in one GUI program for the GNOME desktop". Users (including newbies) could then share desktops in one step, accelerating the advancement of Linux desktop awesomeness to biblical proportions. The project recently released v.0.1beta, and, as Ghandi would say, it is pure win."
