After messing around with gnome 2.26 and gnome shell, I am very torn between gnome and lxde. Gnome seems to be getting very heavy in the dependecies. Creates quite a large setup. Not sure if this is really required for most of what people do nowadays and it was also pretty slow on both ubuntu and Fedora. Think I might just go back to the lightweight style DE/WM's. I do like the speed.
