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!
