Paul Hubert (IP:, That is what I was looking for. Good stuff mate. I was actually waiting for some one to say more that "GNOME isn't ready". You've have outlined why one of the many alternatives out there are not suited to your needs, and I respect those reasons.

I was continiously on the other posters back because of the parrot like mentality he had when responding to my question. It is like an 8 year old say, "no, and I'm not going to tell you why". Make a statement, then back it up.

It only makes good business sense to move production overseas to Taiwan or some other country. Dell found this out, and now assembles all of the Asia-Pacific region computers in Malaysia, which has a GDP per capital of around $US11,000, which is only around $US2000 less that New Zealands.
