    I just looked over the new features, looking good.
    I am actually in the process of converting my parents computer into a linux workstation, sick and tired of cleaning it out every weekend when I get over there, too much spyware and malware etc, and now that I see new gnome I am defenitely pumped just becasue they will find it just as easy as windows, well almost :)

    I am still sticking to wmaker :wavey:

    btw, Coronet, have you been trying the latest CVS before the official 2.14?

    You should give your parents Gnome, I would suggest Ubuntu... most everything works out of the box, and it does auto-updated. Plus its secured out to the max, incase you are worried they might do something wrong.

    Not as swift as others, but for sure the best to begin

    E17 is great, I love messing around with my ELive CD (Debian + E16 and/or E17 in a live CD). That and XGL really show that X has got a lot of graphic awesomeness headed this way.

    No, there are a few things I refuse to CVS... which are the essentials. The GUI, the browser (Firefox), and the mail client (Evolution). But I did swoop up on 2.13 (never officially released?), and I liked that a whole bunch.

    Ubuntu was an option but I found FC4 (or 5 maybe?) OR suse 10 as their OS to be alot better option
