X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

Well, Thom has proven his ability to take punixhment, and appoligies well. It takes a lot to own up to a poor opinion piece. Tough to do at home, tougher to do on-line worldwide..... As for the desktops, the fact that Linux has two, or more, very viable desktops allowing it to contend for the desktop of even a minority of the computing world is quite amazing. I like KDE. I have used fluxbox and Gnome. While OSX and Windows get more press, they aren't that much better. OSX is extremely consistent. With a bit of work on our parts, as users, KDE becomes so too. But, I am very thankful for all the hard work by the devs to produce this for me. You guys are amazing. I and many others have benefitted from your efforts...thanks.
