there are people that will use *box wm's that will probably like this. *not me* but still, it's news so I thought it best to make others aware.

I think that's great! There are tons of people who use things like rox to get the icons on flux, this will be good news for them. I personally have grown accustomed to using GKrellm Launch plugin for those commonly used apps that I don't wish to type into a term



Cool

Yeah, that launcher, it's great!

For usability I also have the Shoot plugin for screenshots, and the number lock status info. I also run seti@home and have that plugin as well. I'd die without my sunrise/sunset info, and I love my moonphase plugin. I also enjoy the weather plugin as it tells me what the non-geeks are living like out there

Cool
