re: hmmmm! Giant Rat!
Roos aren't rodents, to my knowledge.
In fact, they're marsupials (like a koala).
If you want to eat a giant rodent, go to Brazil and try the Capyvara.
My wife says it's tasty (she's from Brazil).
Capyvara is the largest rodent.
But Symphony, despite th pretty interface, is not a complete suite, as OpenOffice, and a bit buggy.
Including OpenOffice would be a much better option for enterprises.
We use it here in my company (I'm the owner, make all tech decisions).
We tried Symphony. It's not ready.
We prefer FOSS anyway, and Symphony comes with a proprietary license.
I BE PO'
I just want an app on my phone that shows my 1988 Ford Escort and patched jeans...
Dump KDE and/or Gnome and/or Xfce, and use Fluxbuntu (and very efficient), and you've already got a beautiful desktop. Or apt-get JWM.
In either, use a black background and white, green, or blue text.
All set. Easy on the eyes, and functional.
(That's what I do on my Linguas OS box, (screenshots available at linguas os site (parentheticals within parentheticals are groOvy)), which also has a fluxbuntu install on another partition, also configured thus: Black w/light blue text...keys file programmed to bring up all of my most used/needed apps (like sakura terminal emulator) with a keystroke. No icons, no clutter, no bloat...light, functional, ergonomic...works for me...)
Of course, fluxbox is not for your average user.
In all truth, with all the configurability of KDE, any user can make their desktop pretty (so long as they can tolerate the bloat of KDE, which, is still better than all the bloat of Vista or any other M$ crap).
