How is XPde? I've been looking at setting up Linux on all the comps at work as a more cost effective solution to WinXP for everyone to use but I'm afraid that the old windows users might whine about how different any of the WMs/DEs are from Win... What I'm asking is, is XPde a viable desktop solution? I tried it once but could never get it to work right... just succeded in jacking up my GDM install...
Can't believe I haven't voted in this yet. I started trying Linux on a couple of ancient computers so, when I had X at all, I went for the lightweight wms - tried a few and used blackbox almost exclusively. (Though the first I ever saw of Linux after my first install was an old KDE desktop.) Now, even though it's not a necessity on this computer (1.1 GHz Athlon, 512MB RAM) I still like the boxes and switched to Fluxbox because it's got a few frills over blackbox but is still very blackbox-like.
I used to be a big KDE fan, but once I started using fluxbox and xfce, I never go to KDE or GNOME now. But I do open konqueror now and then when I feel that I have to browse through my disk(Not an easy task..tsk,tsk)
