Comment(by bernie):

 Replying to [comment:13 tomeu]:
 > I personally don't care much about it, but I think deployers and QA
 people should be quite concerned about the costs of users being able to
 change the UX significantly and easily. May be better to discuss it now
 and figure out some rules about when to use GConf keys than later having
 to roll back changes that may have proven popular in the field but too
 expensive to support.

 I agree with your argument, but consider that:

 1) we claim that users can freely modify even the code. If they currently
 can't, it's mostly because our UX is incomplete.

 2) when given the opportunity, many children are switching to GNOME also
 because of its UI customization options, such as setting a background
 picture or choosing a screensaver. As useless as these things may seem,
 humans of all ages seem to like them, including hackers. (my desktop
 background is all black, I would refuse to use a computer which comes with
 a blue sky over a green grass theme ;-).
