    gdesklets eh? I'm not really a fan of gnome, which might explain why I haven't heard of it. But interesting none the less. :eek3d: So apparently it's similar to the widgets in Tiger?

    I'm well familar with (k)ubuntu, though I'm windows only at the moment. I'm looking to install again when 5.10 officially releases. I generally go with kubuntu because I much prefer kde, but gnome is getting a bit more tempting these days.

    Yeah, KDE is good too. I tried DesktopBSD that had KDE, and that one was nice actually. :) Too bad DBSD is so un-finished, so far.

    gDesklets are really pretty but use an INSANE amount of RAM. It's disgusting.

    Pretty though. If you can spare the RAM, the pretty might be worth it.

    Not literally my screenshot, but this is what the mundane CDE window manager looks like on my Solaris and Tru64 machines. Mine just has diff colors. Else it's just mostly a console prompt for the rest of my boxes, i.e all linux boxes.

    Yup, an old joint venture between, Sun, SGI, HP, and Adobe I think.

    Never had ANY wierd behavior with it. And not much of a resource pig either. It could be worse. It could be OpenWin! ACK!!!!

    Heh, if you think that's bad, you should see the default FVWM setup at school. It's terrible. I'll post a screenshot tomorrow if I remember.

    Oh yeah, it can be pretty, they just haven't made it that way by default. It's too bad, because it kinda scares people away from using Linux when they're first introduced to it. If they actually discover that they can switch their WM to XFCE or OpenBox or Flux, then they like it a lot better, but of course no one actually tells them that in their first lab.

    BEHOLD, the ugliest desktop environment in the world, the default FVWM setup here at school. Thank god we can use XFCE.

    It may look ugly but for university machines it's about portfolio, not profile. Yeah it may not look the nicest, but you know where to find things all the time, and they usually work just right.

    Actually, it's just a really bad setup. Labadmin knows it's bad, but they didn't have time over the summer to make a new one because they had to switch around a bunch of labs and do some upgrades. They know that the only way they can get the department to move the first-year courses to Linux (they're currently taught in Windows) is if there's a nice easy-to-use Linux environment, so it's worth their while to do at some point.

    They'll only officially support FVWM2 because there's so little that can go wrong with it (of course - it doesn't have many features) and before this year they had SunOS, OpenBSD and Linux all running in the building and FVWM ran nicely and easily on all of them. Luckily they allow some student-maintained software, and we have XFCE, OpenBox and Flux in there for anyone to use.
