Forgot to mention, good subliminal sales tactic Juanito, cleaner terminal outputs and congruent terminal sizes, displaying pretty Core logo in the 'nice' version
In actuality all terminals open to the same default size and FLWM smart places newly opened windows into the corners first, not obscuring the nice Core logo regardless of transparency.
The originally proposed suggestions were meant to be used as a package to provide maximum readability, functionality and performance for all systems while being asthetically pleasing. Not everyone who starts using TC is an expert, it is meant for all potential users to try, therefore not all immediately know how to change defaults. If someone argues no performance hit with transparency, boot up a Pentium III. If someone argues nobody uses this old hardware, i would counter systems like TC are the best for old hardware, last stop before recycling. There is an obvious difference with dimming. If someone argues why all the trouble, defaults need to be set to something so may as well make them efficient and as usable as possible.
I once asked a fellow member why even incremental changes were so difficult, the reply was i need to successfully argue my case and convince the developers. Just digging in and holding up my end, no ill will intended. For the record, the suggested defaults are not all of my preferences, just think they are best defaults for base system. If a developer promised Roberts TC would always be blue or whatever, then of course i would understand. Take care all.
