It's not just a question of looks though, of course. These "proper"

Though I did have a soft spot for that flat monochrome look -- which
was partly a design consequence of doing much of the initial work
using genuinely mono displays (huge, high-resolution Sun CRT monitors
supporting black and white pixels only, no greyscale).
Looks aside, if you tried Antique Rosegarden again now I'm sure you'd
be surprised by how little it could actually do.
