Really?  That's the first impression you took from Lucid?  I'm
surprised that you "Went all GUI" and found yourself in such an
inescapable mess.  Have a look at >> System >> Preferences >>
Appearance, and then the Themes tab.  Perhaps you'll find something
more to your liking there.  These F/LOSS systems are kind of neat.
They let you change things.  ;-)
