Dropline GNOME? How be it? Never heard of it, but I love all the things that GNOME has, like Wireless Monitor and desklets. Whee!

Guest Heh

I am sure you probably knew that already, espcially considering that post was like 5 months old.

I have tried almost all of them. If you want the bare minimum, go with Ratpoison. If you want the most developed and stable, go with KDE.

 

For the "most for your money" or the best compromise between speed and resource utilization, Fluxbox would be for you.

 

Of course, all of this is my opinion.

I am along the same line as P38. I have tried almost all of them, but the one that I feel most comfortable in is Fluxbox. Flux gives me everything I need for a GUI.

 

The only reason why I use a GUI is for web browsing, that is about it. So since fluxbox is very small, and is not processor intensive, I have decided to stay with this window manager.

 

Anyway, I am not opposed to any of them, except maybe blackbox, just because it is identical to fluxbox, but less functional. If you like commandline, but want browsing capabilities, fluxbox, it's GRAND!

the poll results are looking interesting right now... kde and gnome matching one another and flux taking up third.

 

i wonder if a distro will ever be bold enough to sell with a styled fluxbox ... rather than kde/gnome as default...

i think one of the poll answer should have been, "i use console". 'cause, i just use console. i chose "other". :)
