Linux A complaint you hear quite often is that the Linux desktop environments, which mostly refers to KDE and GNOME, are trying too hard to be like Windows and Mac OS X. Now, even James Bottomley, Distinguished Engineer at Novell, Director of the Linux Foundation, and Chair of its Technical Advisory Board (put that on your business card) states in an interview that he believes the Linux desktop is too much like Windows and Mac.

I have been imagining a compositing tiling WM lately, I think it could actually work fairly well if not too flashy.

Anyway, not much to add but I would like to see more emphasis on tiling WM's also, it sounds kind of funny but I think they are the way forward (ah one can dream).
