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."

What annoys me is your attitude towards Windows users: they are dumb, unaware, and must be force-fed "awareness" of alternatives - whether they want to or not. This attitude is hurting Linux much more than anything else, and it is one of the prime reasons why my enthusiasm for Linux has lessened greatly ever since I started using it eons ago. The arrogance is just dripping out of every one of your pores.


Au contraire, there are very smart Windows users. I have to use it every day myself ;) (joke).

I do not initiate ad hominem attacks on anyone, despite often getting exactly that treatment from other of your posters.

I merely correct disinformation. It is intended to help people, and for many people it can be a great help.

Clearly we see this very differently. From my point of view, for example, it is you drip arrogance out of every sentence.

How does it help anybody to leave disinformation unanswered, and to leave a potential helpful solution to people lying in disuse through badmouthing, disinformation and lack of awareness?
