Thank you Tim for hitting the nail right on the head.  This is what I am trying to say in the previous messages within this thread.  We need none of that.  I see the toolbars in the other OS, and I would hate ***linux any not just Fedora*** incorporate them, that would definitely make me sad :(  This is what I liked about linux and now they are invading it as well :(

My $0.02, I will have to save so I can fill my car's tank as the 
gas_prices >= $4.00, and gas_prices++) not cool :( either 

$0.02 is not much lost in this case.  

Regards,

Antonio
