Forgive me if there was already a topic like this recently.

What is your favorite desktop manager/environment?

I like KDE because it comes with alot of options and is easy to use and configure. It was also the first manager I ever installed on a Linux machine, so that spoiled me too. :p

How about you?

definately Other

Fluxbox user by heart (gotta love the scroll wheel action and tab shortcuts 8) at least if you work with 6 desktops and 7 xterms on each tabbed into one position :twisted: )

Still looking for the ideal file manager though (for the rare occasions where cli is slower :wink: )
Main features wanted:
# collapsable directory tree in seperate frame
# view of just filename in a list, sortable by name, type, date, size, ...
# splitable in two of the above in classic norton commander style (with drag and drop)
# configurable actions by filetype

and most important
# NOT A CLUE of html, web browsing is for Web browsers only :!:


got any tips with this?

Fluxbox. Also like ratpoison a bit, but fluxbox is more practical. Easier when working on php because I have to keep switching to the browser. Also, a little eye-candy on fluxbox goes a long way. Gkrellm on my desktop, and 3ddesktop assigned to the function keys to change desktop looks better than KDE and GNOME.
