well maybe, maybe just honest, i can't say i disagree with marc on this

marc is a man who knows what he likes, sometimes i agree, sometimes i do
not, on this i agree.

Does anyone want to dispute this with usability issues? probably not, if
i wanted *proper* tabs i would use some beos derivative.

fwiw i don't think openbox people are especially rude, but they (we?)
do not suffer fools gladly, you have to stand your ground on issues you
believe in, no matter how petty it sounds. if anyone wants to dispute an
issue then do so; state your reasons, i am sure they will be considered
for their merits.

keep it clean,
