Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

"ultra-modern"?

the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers

I love KDE, but I have always had the impression that KDE and Gnome were designed and built primarily to catch-up windows in the desktop world (except in the case of KDE4). It's not that they haven't succeded at it and have even beated windows in some areas, but I wouldn't call them "ultra-modern" myself. Modern, yes, but not "ultra-modern".

(i know, i know, I also could answer some things to a message like this, but it's just my opinion)
