and basically, I agree. But the background is really just the
background, and does not have anything to do with how the GUI feels
when it's being used.

4.1 looks "different" anyway.

But don't you think the eye-candy that energized people is in other
places than the background? What I really like about the GUI
enhancements is the slick buttons, title bar sizes, and window
colouring. That's what people *work* with.

Hm. In the end, I realise I really don't care about the background. I
remove it and get to work. :-)
