I just have these random fits of sloppiness and then these random fits of being a stickler for accuracy. Don't mind me.
==================
Oh, not at all!! You are obviously quite knowledgeable and I appreciate your posts. Out of curiosity (I may have missed your earlier post about this) which wm or de do you most regularly use? Minimalist??? Icewm or WindowMaker? AfterStep?

Heh. Not very knowledgeable, but thanks. I'm posting from ice and voted for it in the wm poll and my current second favorite is pek. I can do a real quick history of 'revolt from Windows and then achieving equilibrium': first Linux I ever used booted me into KDE by default and I hated it and still dislike it. I went to ratpoison (is that where you took your name?), blackbox, fluxbox (a long time), and then ice as primaries.

Last off-topic thing if the mods will allow, but turnabout is fairplay - yours?

Count another for Gentoo. Ubuntu is also good.

I'm something of a wm whore. I switch quite a bit for no other reason than novelty. I LOVE ratpoison. Everything is full screen and the keybindings are so easy to configure. ion was the first "minimalist" wm to grab my attention and I still use it a bit, checking out each new update. wmi is also very slick w/ ultrasmall footprint, yet highly configurable. For the past two weeks, I've been palying again w/ XFCE. Version 4.2 beta is very nice for a simple DE.

I started out with RedHat 4.2, and finished Linux at RedHat 7...

I now use FreeBSD. Try it!!
All the Linux users I know have given it a whirl, and never gone back to Linux...

"I now use FreeBSD. Try it!!"

I'd love to. Would you kindly direct me to the Java J2SE 5.0 port?
