    RE: Desktop Environments
    I'm a pretty big fan of XFCE when it comes to a full desktop environment. It does everything most users want, is very low on resource usage, and is fairly easily customized (working with compiz and devilspie can lead to a desktop that is beautifully custom). Outside of XFCE I really love the pekwm window manager. It allows window grouping, and is very flexible and customizable. I've also been playing around with the awesome window manager -- a tiling manger similar to monad or ion. IMO - tiling window managers are nice, I've just never really had the time to sit down and tweak them to the level that I'd like to. Without doing that, I haven't reached the productivity level that I have with XFCE and/or pekwm. George
