Windows A few weeks ago, I reviewed the Acer Aspire One notebook, the variant which came with an Acer-modified version of Linpus Linux. This version was locked-down and difficult to modify, so not too long after I installed Ubuntu, and was reasonably pleased - despite the amount of tweaking it took to get it working. A few days ago, however, I realised Linux wouldn't be ideal for me on my netbook. Due to pragmatic reasons, I'm now running Windows XP.

I'd actually like vanilla GTK+ to look well without any theme applied. And yes! -Clearlooks does waste quite a lot of space on your desktop, which I find a shame since in general I'm otherwise very satisfied with its look and feel.

Moreover, I'm really looking forward to a Mac OS X like 'column view' in Nautilus and I'm truly hoping for this to be a part of Gnome 2.24 as promised!

One may only wish that 'spring loading folders' might become a possibility at some point - be it from applying a patch or be it included in the official source ...
