Re: [Flame Bait] - Linux as bloatware



I agree. With Gnome and GTK2 (not to mention KDE), we seem to be going in that
direction. I am sticking to fvwm2....

Also, btw, I do not like Fedora's new trend towards hiding stuff like the
CD/floppy, etc. (Just like Windoze!) Can't see what the earlier model where one
could actually see the path suffered from.

Best,
Trotter
