:-) Like I said, Linux has a long way to go for desktop friendly apps.

And a LOT more consistent in it's UI compared to Gnome. Not to mention
that the "your a dumb user so we need to hide everything" approach of
Gnome is absolutely absurd.  I have KDE installed, but I simply can't
switch to it due to the "lazarus gets minimized when switching
desktops" bug. That drives me bonkers, so I'll stay with Gnome dekstop
for now. :-(   Until Graeme's clone #55 finishes his new Window
Manager written in fpGUI. :-)
