The same seems to be true, but slightly less so, of KDE apps.

I don't really care that much about integration, and see it has some
serious drawbacks too. 

If all these people would just agree on data formats and protocol,
integration could be done without the bloat, IMHO.

I wish there were a project on the net for X-only applications.  So many
X projects have died due to the move to KDE and Gnome.

I hate to say this, but I'd rather seem Motif than either. It had a lot
of thorns, but at least it could have been ONE projec to back instead of
two redundant ones in a feature-war.

I can't believe its 2003 and UNIX still doesn't have a coherent GUI
