Window Managers Gtk+ has GNOME on the one hand, and Xfce on the other. Qt, on the other hand, only has KDE - there's no lightweight, less encompassing alternative if KDE doesn't float your boat, but you'd still want a Qt desktop. Luckily for you, there's now Razor-qt, a small, lightweight and simple Qt desktop environment.

Why would I want to install it to my home directory if I am part of the wheel group?


If you are in a *nix group that enables you to su to root or run sudo...and, you don't want to be limited to installing apps in your home directory....and, you don't want to be prompted to enter a password.....then, I see 1 option: log in as root.

Otherwise, how would your OS know that it is OK for you to install applications system wide to directories like /bin and /sbin, but not execute privileged commands like rm -fr /bin and rm -fr /sbin?

I'm not an expert in *nix security. I've always just accepted things for being the way they are because I give the benefit of the doubt to the kernel hackers. I trust it's all been well thought out. If you really want less security, run it less securely or run a less secure OS. Problem solved.
