Has anyone used this WM?

http://www.xfce.org/

It is the best environment I have ever used, even better than AOS /BeOS/Photon.

AmigaOne users do yourself a favour and install it on your Linux installation. you won't regret it.

For newbies: on debian (I've switched back from Gentoo!) type

apt-get update
apt-get install xfce4
aptget install xfprint4
aptget install xffm4

Very Amiga like. IMHO, this is what AOS4 default should be like.

At the moment just the default theme as I like the default GTK2 theme and have liked GNOME since 2.2.

I might make an AOS3.1 style  if i get the time though.

You have to be kidding - XFCE is CDE respawned!
