That is the point: the current look-and-feel of TDE is the same as almost 10 years ago. This pleases a lot of old users
(including me :-) ) but does not do anything to attract new users. Therefore it is quite unlikely to attract new developers.
Thomas raised a good point in his emails, that is TDE is still perceived "as a stale clone of KDE 3.5". Modernizing its
look could help getting rid of such perception and expand its user base.
This does not mean making TDE less effective or less productive. It will be exactly the same TDE with an additional
optional look-and-feel.
As I stated in another email, we are not going to throw away whatever we have. The idea is to have two (perhaps more)
default themes and give the generic new user the choice of which one to start with: classic TDE (now) or modern TDE.
As for the logo, we are just discussing for the time being, nothing as been decided yet.
