One thing for sure I know, this year things are very hectic in Linux world.


You can say that again! The state of the Linux desktop is absolutely appalling at the moment. So much so that I switched to JWM (a simple window manager), instead of these bloated and user unfriendly desktop environments. JWM is lightning fast, stays out of my way while I get my work done. Menus are easy to configure to your liking. I even have a script that integrates the "Gnome menu", so if I install new app, they are automatically visible in JwM's menu.

New is clearly not always better. Go with the time-tested and trusted software that works.

I'm even considering moving back to Slackware (from Ubuntu). The simplicity of installing and compiling software (optimized for your hardware) is just great.
