I was using xfce for a while, but now I solved the bloody keyboard problem, I'm using dwm full time again, and right now checking out Echinus. A little odd, but not too shabby.

Yep. On the face of it, that appears to be true. XP runs faster and uses fewer resources than KDE RH 4.xx. Next time I get my hands on a box running Windows 7, I take a look to see how it compares to XP and KDE RH 4.xx (Resource Hog).

Ehh!!

Apparently I already voted in this one. Musta been some time ago, 'cause I'm no longer using what I voted for at the time, which was Xfce.

Now I use i3 WM with a shell-scripted Dzen2, and Dmenu.

I tried Windows 7 on same Machine and its faster and very useable even with aero enabled.
i can`t understand why KDE 4.x made its way into the slackware distribution... they should stick with 3.x.. or gnome :O

KDE4 is not useable.. and feels uncomfortable ...

Not to defend the Resource Hog (well it IS!), but that was KDE 4.2.1 in Slackware 13.0. KDE is now up to 4.4.x. It MIGHT be a tad better. I don't know, it's still too much of a Hog for me to use.

I had to roll back to a stable install after -current borked my system and didn't realize it but I must have popped in the 12.2 cd as kde 3.5 came up. I relaized I'm missing some features now, the file info view in konqueror, etc that didn't make it to kde4. So I'm wondering if I should just switch to a different desktop.
I used KDE mainly because of Korganizer, it turned out to be the best PIM I've used but I couldn't sync it with anything so I've ended up using google calendar and thunderbird/lightning/sunbird and was already using firefox. So the only kde app I'm really using now is kphotoalbum other than that I'm not tied to KDE.

Are there really good file managers in other desktops, I want to be able to see all the file metadata like picture exif, mp3 id3 tags, etc like I could in kde3 but cant in kde4. Are there other good photoalbum apps?
