Let me be straight, here, but please don't see me as "rude": in every
way that's related with my poor english not with my intentions.
I _think_ that most people that actually like the huge remote are
"used" to that... there are people that like messy desktop, people
with clean desktop and... people that have no interest to clean it.
Perhaps it can be useful to show a "new way" to do something (like in
some ways traced from Apple... i'm not an apple fan, i'm using
everyday at home linux since years).
I don't know if it's so difficult to implement in the current myth,
but I'm pretty sure that can be a new way to "consider" the htpc. The
power of myth is sure but, from my point, is that there is something
to do with the "pleasuse of usability".

my .2 cents
