Thanks for stating the obvious.KDE isn't an OS.
No, they are not. You are mistaken.Apparently OS, DE and WM are all substitutable terms.
The same as gnome, then?There's not much of a 'native' icon set to really speak of on Windows, you've got the option of either hacking resource files for specific apps (explorer), or creating your own;
The problem is that GTK is using Tango icons for icons that do exist natively on Windows. Like the folder icon, for instance.it's otherwise slim pickings in terms of the stock API icons.
Mostly miss.Integration with KDE is hit-or-miss, depending upon how completely the icon theme covers the (current) freedesktop icon specs, which are kind of troublesome in themselves.
GTK should automatically use the correct order for the OS it is running on. It shouldn't be an option.Which Gtk+ apps are we talking about? Dialogue button orders can be configured in the gtkrc, it just so happens that The GIMP porters fail to toggle that setting (which is great if you spend most of your time on *nix but obviously a bad thing for Windows users).
The fact that other toolkits get things wrong doesn't make GTK suck less.Because Gtk+ is the only toolkit that has problems, here.
