Well, I would understand componentizing them for performance reasons, but ideally I think what I was hoping for was to be able to chose which components, or stand alone programs, I want installed onto my system so that I can pick and choose what to have, and have them operate tightly integrated with each other (on the functional level). For instance, just having the icon to go to my mail program in the status bar at the bottom of the screen, or being able to go to File/New/Mail Message in Mozilla Browser (which is what I understnd it'll be called, as Firebird is just a development name--or was that a statement just to throw off the database people?). I think the biggest achievement is actually to rearrange, regorganize, and thank God, simplify that bloated, complicated preferences options and toolbar menus.. heck, why on earth would I need to access a link to a Download manager or link to my mail program from a bookmark manager?

I agree about the thoughts about the Qute theme. I know they were going for the Windows XP look and feel, but Qute kinda takes it to a new level of cartoonishness. Still, I respect that as the direction the project is taking and it's MUCH better than the dead-body blue Modern theme or the generations outdated Classic theme.
