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."

"I'm not trying to be a smart-a$$, but seriously. I maintain Linux servers and they are pretty much rock-solid (mostly Tomcat5 and Java webapps). "

I won't mod you down (others will), but your post is completely OT.

"What can Linux on the desktop do for me, that a properly-configured XP install won't?"

The same question can be asked in reverse: What can Windows on a desktop do for me, that a properly-configured Linux install won't *.
