Widgets and the Window Manager

From Tango Desktop Project
Jump to: navigation, search

The Tango widget and window manager themes form the foundation of the way the operating system is percieved. It is important that a default theme should have the following qualities:

  • Clean - it should not be distracting.
  • Usable - eye candy does not take precedence over usability.
  • Professional - the theme should be able to be used in all environments, from the workplace to the home; it should not be embarassing or garish.
  • Longevity - it has to stand the test of time; it should not get old after a few days.
  • Pizazz - there should be some kick to spice up desktops a bit.
