Window Managers We're all pretty much versed in the worlds of GNOME, KDE, and to a lesser degree, Xfce, and while there are lots of alternatives, none of the smaller ones really seem to gain much traction beyond their fans. An exception is LXDE, a small and resource efficient desktop environment.

No, in xfce3 you could cover the panel with windows. In the current version, you can't. You can in KDE. That's why I stopped using it. I want to be able to be able to cover the panel like I can even with CDE.

Good catch, I never noticed this before since I never like to cover the panel. A quick workaround that I've found is to right-click the titlebar of the app you are running, and select "Always on Top." Not the most intuitive solution, especially if you want this to be the default behavior for all windows, but it's there. There might be a way to treat the panel like other windows and select "Always Below Other Windows" but I haven't found it.

Still the most customizable of the three major desktop environments....just try to bind the applications menu to a right-click in KDE 4x.

I tried that and the window you make stay on top stay on top...any other windows opened after opens under it.

Chani Armitage's GSoC project is about making the desktop right click menu customisable: http://chani.wordpress.com/category/soc/" http://chani.wordpres....
