Sorry but I have to voice my thoughts here - as an end user. Personally
I much prefer the orage clock over the "original", I just find it to be
more versatile for the way I use my computer. I actually use both at
the same time - the "original" in analog mode followed by orage clock
with 2 lines, time over day and date. So please, if you *have* to nuke
a clock, nuke the "original". (yours DOES have an analog mode doesn't
it?). Of course, if your new clock can do this kind of layout, ie 2
clocks in one (ASclock style?), then nuke away, I keep an instance of
orage in the system tray anyway.

Thanks for your consideration,
