These defaults are pretty much the same as used by GNOME (which is pretty 
good at setting defaults, but they also by default render fonts at 96 DPI, 
which KDE, alas, does not), and they look fine here, and on the few other 
displays I've tested. Of course, many users have _very_ different displays, 
so I really, really want feedback and comments on these new defaults 
(positive or negative), so that if they're not suitable, I can adjust them 
before KDE 3.4 enters unstable.

Hmmm, could you explain what you mean here?

Thanks,
