Did you know Citadel is descended from BBS software developed in the 80s? Wow! On one hand, it's mature and stable. But on the other hand, it certain areas, such as the user interface it feels old/clunky. I like that unlike other groupware suites it really is 100% open source. At the risk of dating myself I also like that the BBS style terminal chat rooms are still supported. I'd use that just for the nostalgic amusement value.

Note that this has to be the simplest TKLPatch we've ever had submitted.

It's nice that citadel is so well supported in Ubuntu/Debian but it's a shame Citadel is so darn ugly by default. Do you think maybe we could configure the tklpatch to use a nicer theme (e.g., Blue Citadel looks half decent)?

What do you think?
