Window Managers "Linux has proven amazingly flexible: after nearly 10 years of use, I'm still impressed by how the Linux operating system does exactly what I want on any type of hardware. Desktop customization is no exception; from the ultra-modern KDE and GNOME window managers to with the likes of Fluxbox and AfterStep, there's a Linux desktop to suit everyone."

RE[3]: wm for a server?

Member since:

as I've seen plenty of xp installs just work

Not a Really Good Argument (tm) since people just might drop on you saying the opposite (myself included). I won't do that, just told so you know, and I almost agree with the rest you said.

what can windows do for ME that a properly configured linux install can't?

Well, there are some things, strictly windows related, but I wouldn't really care about that. Thing is, if one is able enough to know what one needs, one could sometimes find out that both of them could do the job. If this is the case, subjective preference will decide. But most of the time it's some external influence, e.g. at work we have to do only windows development since I'm about the only one who knows Linux and teamwork dictates.
