XFCE 4.3

running the bleedin edge unstable version atm. Its pretty fly. Desktop icons and a new sane file manager, Thunar. Zippy as all out. Available for the new Ubuntu Dapper Drake via Synaptic.

You know you want it, red. :D

Might have to give it a whirl thou I cant see me going back to it after using pekwm (pekwm 1.4 has gone stable btw ;) )

Having said that I would probably use Thunar, GUI file manger is nice now and again, nautilus is bloated and I dont get on with ROX.

I use it with Openbox and Fbpanel, as theyre a little more austere. :P

I dont have the need for a panel. Keep trying stuff like fbpanel out every so often but find myself not using it. I generally either use a shortcut to bring up the root menu or just bring up the command box and type in the command.

I have xfce installed incase anyone else needs to use my computer - pekwm does require some reading of the docs to get going (much like openbox).

max i just got my fingers burnt with dapper. so i will summon the courage a little more closer the release. as being a ppc candidate i am kinda subject to people coding for me as there arnt many imacs running ubuntu. i know of about 4 people on the ubuntu forums running a g3 imac. not even my variant or architecture lol :)

i am unique!
