I am forced to think of things in a practical term... The idea of a
standardized GUI interface for Linux is never going to happen, not in a
million years. Know why? There are too many different GUI toolkits.
Hey, there's even too many efforts toward a standardized interface!

You have got to be NUTS! It would take us a month just to get something
that printed 'A' then hung the computer! It took 6 years of development
at a phenominal speed to get linux to where it is now! And THAT'S with
over 100 developers! You are absolutely CRAZY... TTYL!
