    Form follows function

    Could be that I work in the scientific research field that I don't go for the aesthetics slant on theme design.

    Frank Lloyd Wright's slogan "form follows function" should be the mantra of designers whether it is BB themes, buildings, or machines.

    That being said, miro 2.o is still a sweet theme, lefties just naturally adapt to things.

    Count me in on the testing. I'd love to see something like this. You get used to it, but....

    As a left-handed blonde - I agree with you guys. But like most left handers- we are so used to adapting to the "right" way of doing things that it becomes 2nd nature. When I finished cosmotology school I rewarded myself with an expensive pair of left-handed scissors-- turns out I couldn't use them- I was so used to cutting with right handed ones that I couldn't get used to applying pressure the other way- so they were useless. Also- whenever I am typing one-handed on my blackberry- I use my right hand.

    Great idea, but like everything else designed for lefties, it'll mess up our little world cause we've had to acclimate to the right handed world for so long.

    Being a lefty myself, I am much like Maddie when it comes to my Blackberry. It would be a nice thing if there were such a thing as a left handed oriented theme. Great idea.
