hope this is not dumb...my brother just installed LM 8.0, told me he loves gnome. from what i´ve heard/read, i´d be wanting to use konqueror and kmail, though. can i run these applications under gnome? or do i have to go with the respective applications gnome comes with, like nautilus and evolution?
this desktop/windowmanager/GUI thing still got me confused, sorry...coming from windows (sorry again but i had to start somewhere
i tend to get mixed up with what linux (the os) does, what distro-specific things (like the mandrake control center) do, and what a desktop etc does...i suppose there is solid information and explanations available about these things, so if it takes too long to explain, please just point me to where i´d have to look!
