True, but to be fair...

1) It looks pretty nice both in terms of eye-candy.
2) It looks pretty good in terms of accessibility.
3) It doesn't have a pink-- sorry, "salmon" background. :P

It might be good for us to get in touch with their developers and talk to them about the concerns we have with their product. I think they've got something that looks pretty nice, and might very well be something to contend with the Suse menu. It's an idea worth playing with.
My soul hurts. Please read what happened. It hurts, and nothing will happen. Perhaps they will try to soothe their conscience by removing this from my signature, so read it, and talk about it.

If I may ask, what sort of usability issues? The kind that make it difficult for the dev's to incorporate it into a release, or the kind that would prevent me (as a user) from emerging and using it?

Th ecurrent menu is a nice alternative to kbfx, but my Radeon 9200 can't handle it with AIGLX and Beryl running (empty menu, no menu switching, temp freezes, etc)

TIA

I like the layout, the suse kicker always seemed kinda clunky
