Red Hat "We see the desktop as only a piece of the entire operating system product; integration must extend beyond the desktop. We also believe that users care most about functionality and integration rather than the underlying technology. For these reasons, we have created a single desktop look and feel for Red Hat Linux rather than maintaining two unrelated configurations." Very good stuff over there from Owen Taylor, the Red Hat Desktop Team member.

I have personally found Linux Running X to be horribly unresponsive and ugly.... just my opinion

Try a lighter weight window manager like windowmaker. If that doesn't solve the problem (and you are on at least a pentium system) then I'd suggest your X properly configured.

As for ugly shopping for a window manager should fix that too http://www.plig.org/xwinman/
