Erm. As I've stated since the start of whole UI team conversation, I
would like to see ROS aim for classic window look (classic being XP's
classic theme) with few upgrades, like start menu. I've been designing
new way for configuring the OS but I still don't think I like it
Anyways, as soon as I get my computer table up I start writing some
proper design documents instead of just graphical tests. (Done those
at school) The cardboard - couch environment isn't very healty since I
have to hunch down to write anything...

Personally I would also like to see you joining the UI team, since the
explorer is a important part of GUI.
