Well, IceWM always has one veeery special feature that I love: one-key access to main menu!

1. KDE is easy: Login and start working, that's all one has to do.
2. KDE is more powerful: if one doesn't like something, chances are it's customizeable by KDE's GUI tool.
3. KDE is more versatile: one can make it look like GNOME, MAC-OS-X, or whatever.
4. KDE is is becoming faster while still growing in feature-richness compared to Gnome's opposite direction of development.
5. One can seriously overtweak KDE, and still lose not much speed, And most of us know how KDE look like when seriously overtweaked, even OS-X harly beats that, not to mention Vista...

So, no wonder Linus switched to KDE...

Gnome is "customizable" enough for me...

How big is that file SCerovec? I am at work and my down_speed = 16341kb, up_speed = 5574kb according to speedtest.net. Still, it looks like your file won't be done till Christmas here. Either it is a huge file or your up speed is not that fast

The fruits of success belong to the patient
it's on a 256kbit/256kbit link
If someone answered the zero-reply thread I asked in the networking section, it would be slightly more efficient (that's so KDE related...)
