(you can notice not noticing, after the fact.) it still takes some wrestling to simplify the interface to what I like whereas tde3 looks like what I want almost out of the box, I just have to remove bits of eye-candy like 'scenic' backgrounds and adjust fonts, etc. (it's weird, the 'desktop' metaphor; normally one's real desktop is out of sight; one doesn't decorate it.
