RE: Who cares
You jumped too early. It's a pretty cool time in alternative DEs and WMs, since a lot of what you used to need GNOME or KDE for is being re-implemented in code that doesn't need 400MB of dependencies.
I actually agree with that, I almost said it in my previous post. The best distros seem to be the ones which don't use GNOME or KDE: Knoppix, Sabayon Xfce, Ultimate Edition 3.0 "Gamers"...
