Desktop Designer Preview
Desktop Designer is a tool that should bring all possibility of styling your GNOME desktop, under one user interface!
Because of that:
1. It is much easer to configure the look of your desktop, specially for beginners.
2.It should be possible to make a desktop theme, which change the whole desktop style with just one click. You can save this theme to use it later again. You can export it to share it with others and it is possible to install a new one.
The sense of the desktop designer
I read very often in some forums that people had seen nice screen shots, but not the knowledge or the time to search for the GTK-theme, the icon-theme, the background image, the window border, etc.
And also additional programs like AWN and Screenlets are often seen on screen shots, but a beginner does not know what he should searching for. So in the past some guys asked where they can find stuff like this.
The Desktop Designer would that make this much easer! For the normal user who only wants to work with his PC but does not like the style of the distribution-theme would it be very easy to change the look of the desktop. The beginner does not need to search for all the programs and themes and everyone els gets a single user interface for the whole desktop styling.
