Window Managers In the final years of my high school career, more concerned with going out and drinking three times a week than with actually doing anything meaningful at my supposedly posh gymnasium, I rediscovered my love for computing - a love lost during the onset of aforementioned going out and drinking. Realising I would hit university soon, I saved up 2000 guilders, ordered the parts for a brand-new computer, and thanks to this then state-of-the-art computer, old flames were rekindled. Since this pun is burning a hole in my pocket - it was an enlightening experience.

The way Linux is designed for software distribution could be improved.


Know what you mean, but this is one of the things that makes Linux strong - installation is not modular at all. That means the dummies can't just go and click away installing things.

Usually when I do software maintenance on user's Windows machines, this kind of thing is a disaster, they just click away a .EXE file and load up ten different toolbars in IE, they don't even uncheck stuff like this when installing adware apps.
