Oh yeah. Remove the Tweak Tool, why not? But then you have to live with the ugliest font settings ever invented by free software developers.
Rhythmbox should never be installed but then the so called best Gnome distro Fedora does it and even uses Firefox but you should ship Epiphany (a pain in the ass) and what was it about redundancy?

Another cool quote by Catanzaro:
For instance, even though Evolution is (in my opinion) the highest-quality desktop mail client that exists today, it can be very difficult to configure, the user interface is large and unintuitive, and most users would probably be better served by webmail.
He uses Evolution although he knows it is total crap. Thank you.

Now this is where free software culture totally fails even though he might have had a point somewhere, especially with a default Debian install or such abominations like Ubuntu Gnome. And yes, I would like to see Evolution die in a default Debian install.

I should have posted this in the rant thread, sorry guys. Luckily we have the grill where the user really is in control.

Though he states it is a SHOULD, not a MUST, so I give him that.

problem is -in evolution's case- he mentions that users 'need' all the shit which goes with modern services, like exchange and certain business features, the same reason most windows users use MS outlook whch they admit is awful BUT it has colours or some indispensable calendar/CRM integration bollocks.

Yeah the tweak took is the main thing that makes it useful, along with dconf editor, those are MUST ABSOLUTELY NEED

What all of you mentioned above (about Gnome) reminds me of. Someone has to say "fuck it, let's go back to the dark age."
