I did when I joined, but I didn't get any 
response to the idea. I'll post the suggestion 
again when I remember!

This is true. We do get the 'first impression' 
glory, but from there things go downhill 
slightly... Of course, some projects are 
different... ;-)

Based on a lot of the 'Artist Sux' comments that 
appear on this list from time-to-time, I'd be 
inclined to say that programmers think they're a 
little smarter. But, that's /not/ my opinion, 
just a reaction! 

This whole area is something that is changing. 
Linux is now competing in a more graphical 
environment so artists are a necessary evil. It's 
just a shame we're percieved the way we are in 
more technical forums...
