Re: [LUG] The great debate - window managers

KDE2 is fairly impressive - although it looks and feels far too much
like a windoze clone for my liking.

A decent Gnome set-up can be far better - although the defualt set-ups
that are shipped with most distro's make gnome look quite poor, which is
a shame.

With Gnome, I used to use enlightenment - which is great - aslong as
tyou have fast hardware to back it up.  Then I switched to window maker
which was pretty cool, but now, I'm using it with IceWM - which seems to
me to be the fastest and most light-weight of the three - and is still
nice to look at and use.
