I don't know why, but there seems to be a general trend to make things
ugly or dumbed down. It's not just with the N800, but a lot of other
things too. I've been able to improve the appearance somewhat, but it's
still not very attractive. For example, I like to use the hand writing
input, but the panel is a big mass of black that not only looks bad, but
is harder to see the details of it. In the terminal program, I used to
have green text on black, but while I can set the background to black, I
don't see any way to change the text colour. It's always black. It would
be nice, if the old styles was available.

BTW, I don't need icons etc., that look like they belong on a child's toy.

Use OpenOffice.org <http://www.openoffice.org>
