I really love Gnome, especially the new version 2.10. I also tried KDE for a couple of weeks, but it don't like it. It is very confusing when opening the start menu, because all application names start with a 'K'. This is not easy to read at all.

There are a few nice programs, like k3b - but KDE can never beat Gnome (for me).

You're right about the K thing. it's so confusing. Give me the simplicity of name like gedit, gnumeric, gnucash and gaim any day Laughing

Tux was brought to you today by the letters 'K' and 'G' and the numbers '6' and '9'.

yeah i looked at some screen shots and E17 does look good, much better than the dodgy uk boy band of the same name. I hope that doesnt put people off! though 'stay now' wasnt to bad if i remember?
Anyway, thank you erin, fellow 'south of the riverer'

Try ELive, a live distribution based on Knoppix with E17 as the default WM. I had a try of it when I put it on my shop, very nice, but I didn't fancy the feel of it myself.

Totally OT here but I use OS X on my desktop and CLI/Web on my *nix boxes. If I had to choose it would be Gnome, but please, please get something better than Nautilus as a file manager.

I dont really mind nautilus, once you set it to browse as default its fine. Whats so bad about it? you ask it to show you the contents of a folder it shows you the contants. Job done

In the place where you linked the avatar it states: "its width can be no greater than 60 pixels, the height no greater than 60 pixels, and the file size no more than 6 KB."
This is obviously bigger than 60x60

Yup thats about it. Rather primitive and ugly. Sorry I just don't like it. We all have our own preferences.
