Maybe that's too much effort for some people, but I don't find it much of a bother considering how often I do so (not very).

How is it superior? Be warned -- If you so much as mention the word "usability," I'm going to shoot your ass with a tranq dart.

FWIW, I prefer KDE themes largely because the widgets and the coloring are separate. Thus, I can use any widget design that I like and choose to color it how ever I will. I can't (easily) do that with GTK themes.

1. You have to compile kde themes or look around for a rpm.

2. There are no themes that even come close to the link I put above, QT cannot even do a MacOSX theme proper and even then it took agers to develope.

3. GTK/GNOME themes can be dragged from a webpage as tar.gz and installed instantly, this is even easier than XP's lack luster theme support.

Thats usability.
