You really need to be ready to be criticised if you ask for people's 
opinions.  No-one came across to me as rude, except just possibly 
yourself for this constant carping on the look of Trinity, and thus 
criticism of the developers.  

Most of us are here because we like functionality and dislike bling.  
Have bling yourself if you want it.  But stop trying to force it on 
the rest of us.

You have over time made it clear that you do not really like Trinity, 
since you want to destroy one of its greatest assets - it prefers 
functionality to bling.  Last time you brought this up it was 
suggested to you that you should do your own fork. That would seem a 
very good option.  You could then have it as blingy as you like, with 
you yourself doing the work.

Meanwhile, give yourself a treat for Christmas.  Buy a new computer, 
install PCLinuxOS with KDE4, Gnome3 and your own fork of Trinity and 
bask in the bling. 

Have a look some time at Knoppix-Adriane.  Such things are needed.  
Whilst Trinity is not specifically aimed at the disabled, it is very 
disabled-friendly because it is so configurable.  Once you have 
filled the world with bling, where are we to go??
