    KDE vs Window Maker

    Time to start a 8) Window Maker 8) thread.

    I've been playing with KDE for some time (unfortunately not KDE3, I won't d/l it with 56k ) and first I thought I may not go back to Window Maker, but here I am again.

    KDE looks extremely pretty and I was happy to configure keyboard shortcuts to my heart's content. That was a good sign. I like everything that is pretty.

    Well, now I've got tired with KDE. It's just too bloated. A way too bloated. I only want pretty apps and title bars, and a lot of keyboard shortcuts I can customize the way I want. Not the kitchen sink!

    So, Window Maker isn't as pretty as KDE and doesn't let me have so much customizable keyboard shortcuts, but at least it's not bloated and stays out of my way when I wanna use my computer.

    Do you want the source ?

    I could burn it and send it to ya.

    anyways... if you absolutely have to use something not KDE, then 8) FluxBox 8)

    Widowmaker has to go stick it where the sun doesn't shine.

    Sounds cool, but then again, I guess I won't like KDE3 either, so it won't be worth the trouble.

    Fluxbox sounds cool, because I really liked Blackbox. Actually I just d/led Fluxbox and I'll install it when I get home. I just hope I can have keyboard shortcuts for opening the menu and window list. If I can't, I won't use it!

    Yeah. To the same place where KDE is right now. :P

    KDE3 is leet. Get liquid and tweak that a litte (I'm working on a theme) and it's a really spiffy WM to use. If not KDE3, fluxbox.

    I wouldn't call anything that had to do with NGene' ass blasphemy... :P

    But then again, I can see why she thinks KDE 2.0 (I think that's the KDE that was on the CDs I gave) is slow and bloated. The speed issues with KDE2.x where only properly fixed in the later releases, and Debian doesn't prelink their KDE binaries.

    Overall I would agree with NGene that KDE pre 2.2.1 is rather slow, and without prelinking it's noticeably laggy when starting programs even on my PC.'

    KDE3 compiled from scratch with prelinking is the shit !

    dude, notice the smiley.. it was a joke

    of course she's free to not like KDE. i'd probably go nuts if everybody liked the things i like.
