Talking Ximain Anybody?


I just heard about something called Ximian, I understand that it runs over GNOME on RedHat 7.2, right? Does anyone have any experience with Ximian, is it a good product, worth installing? Can I uninstall it and revert back to the default GNOME desktop? Just curious.

Thanks in Advance!

Aaron

I have used Ximian for a while now and really like it. Ximian GNOME is actually based on the open source GNOME project. If you don't like it you could always uninstall it and reinstall GNOME. I say go fo it.

I put Ximian on my wife's computer and she loves it, I then put it on mine, now I love it. At least it's bringing me and my wife closer. Linux Rules.

In regards to Ximian, lets say I download it and install it and for whatever reason, I would like to uninstall it...is it fairly easy to uninstall? Is there some documents on how to uninstall it?

Thanks
