Re: [K12OSN] IceWM, Gnome & Nautilus FRUSTRATIONS



I started using Rox at the suggestion of someone on
this list (maybe you, Kevin, I can't remember). 
Anyway, I really like it.  It is very fast and
complements IceWM nicely.  It opens up instantly on my
Celeron 2.0 machine, whereas if I use Konqueror (my
other file manager of choice) I have to wait a few
seconds.
