Re: Give Wine apps the look and feel of GNOME or KDE

Sure, and just *WHERE* are you going to get the source code for those apps that don't have FLOSS equivalents? Let's see, why don't *YOU* call H&RBlock or Intuit and ask for the source code for their tax applications? (And NO, I'm not interested in relying on the Online-Only filing versions, so don't even mention those). There are some apps that are a *long* way from being developed as open-source, and other apps that just don't have the right userbase for a FLOSS project to even start.

So for some time to come, there will be the need to run Windows apps under Wine. So why not at least make them less ugly? (Personally, I'd rather see Wine plug-ins that handle the theming for various desktop environments)
