Yes I have and I like it! --- but, kde4 keeps breaking it (or maybe the 
configs for enlightenment, lxde, etc...) But I will switch to kde4, openoffice 
will be stuck with a black theme and high-contrast icons -- YUK!, then I go 
delete the gtk and qt files in ~/ and ~/.config and reset the config and all 
is good again -- until the next time :p

Right now I have qt set to oxygen (good dark gray), and I have gtk set to 
"NOX" plus a few  tweaks to the highlight and pop-up colors. Looks fantastic.

Also, never having used gnome, I loaded it as well. Shoot, that desktop works 
just fine. I don't know what all the bashing was about. I actually worked for 
a couple of hours without having to write a single bug report and kde.org.

Imagine that...
