(insert long thread about merits and demerits of window managers, culminating in vituperous* rants and acid eventually locking the thread)

I think Redhat 7.2 generally was pretty awful - it crashed on first bootup! 7.3 came out very quickly afterwards, and was far more reliable. It was after installing that that I considered looking at other distros which can only have been good.

Have you tried Gnome without it ? You know you can remove Nautilus and still use Gnome. Its what I do at least.

By far the worst thing I've come across is Nautilus. I'm with Franklin on how it made me hate gnome, it started before I knew I could get rid of it, and just left a bad taste in my mouth. I'd try it again now if flux didn't exist (who'da thunk these tabs were worth something? Damn I am sure thick sometimes )

Cool

I know you can run Gnome w/o Nautilus, but at that point you may as well use fluxbox. Its faster and without desktop icons, whats the benefit of gnome.

I'm an icon kind of guy (I guess that makes me iconic ) and my ideal desktop/wm would be flux with icons and a fast filemanager - although I'm getting quite attatched to MC. This was mentioned in another thread somewhere but I havn't gotten arround to trying the suggested options. I think is was the screenshot thread.

There are two (good) methods to put icons on flux.
One is to use ROX, other to use fbDesk, you can get it at fluxbox.org. There, you got your perfect WM with icons
I also can't wait to try E 0.17. Supposed to be great.

Well, I have found that qtella and the entire gnutella p2p network is crap. I mean, after waiting 10 minutes to get a connection, search for something, then out of 1000 results only 1 will download without an error.

Perhaps I am just too stoopid to get it configured correctly???

Oh yeah...KDE rocks!

I completely second that whole reply. Gnutella sure seems to suck big time! I found DCGui SOOOO much better! Glad I found it too, I was sick of dual booting just for P2P!

Cool
