I was wondering if anyone knows of some cool GUI's that are out there besides Gnome and KDE along with a site that lists and has them available for download. I have kde,gnome,windowmaker,fvwm2,mwm, and twm so far.

I was just wondering if anyone knows of a good place to find info (And download) other GUI's. I have SuSE 9.0 Pro. and slackware 9.1 (Boxed versions).

Just wondering. I hear there is a lot of GUIs out there. Where's a good place to start>?

Are there any other graphics intense ones like gnome and KDE out there? Heh.

I would start with and I'm sure you'll find alot of them that way. Search for window manager, fluxbox, icewm, blackbox, xfce, enlightenment, sawfish etc etc etc.

Did you check out the LinuxQuestions 'Best Desktop' and 'Best Window Manager' award threads? There are some good examples in there.

Nope I didn't know about that awards thread! heh. I'll take a look at it.

I've found some KDE themes and some enlightenment themes. Some are pretty cool.

Some of the KDE ones seem hard to install thogh :-(

I did find a few cool ones though

Thanks for the help!
