Even some cowboy and indian outlaws in the 1800's eventually stopped sleeping under buffalo skins, and came to town to entertain paying customers. For some I imagine the bruising of their ego never healed.

We all have some scar tissue that never lets us completely forget the intent of the adventure.

Personally, i use a combination of fluxbox, rox-filer, and perlpanel for my WM. faster to load than either KDE or GNOME, and it has some of the eyecandy, too. there's a configuration howto on gentoo's website @ http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/fluxbox-config.xml

just ignore all the "emerge" commands, and use google to find the URLs for the programs you wanna use.

Well, I think I've settled on Fluxbox... I've got Debian Sarge on my 10g hd and Slack 10.2 on my 6g drive. Both are currently running Fluxbox; I might change around a bit on the slackware drive, just to get a feel for the others.

Flux is plenty fast enough on my ol' box; I don't care for the looks/layout of WindowMaker, and Enlightenment has too much eye-candy (not slow, just not attractive to me). Also, I like the way Flux does menu editing.

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. :mellow:

I have never regretted that I chose to "take the red pill." But there are days, just rarely, when the truth is so ugly, so brutal, so unmerciful, so relentless, that even if I wouldn't rip the truth from the wall socket and hurl it out the window to crash on the sidewalk below, I wouldn't mind if it featured a snooze button so we could savor just a few more moments in slumbered pretension and warm, fuzzy lies pulled snugly up over our heads.
