I have spent most of the night learning(yeah, right) and toying with the ubuntu edgy installation on my laptop. I have ranted before about the state of the linux desktop environment, because i could not find an environment which does not consume huge amounts of memory(goodbye KDE), does not think that i am an idiot(goodbye gnome) and have a taskbar(goodbye windowmaker, e17, etc.). Tonight i think i may have found the environment i was looking for: xfce. It feels alot like gnome, is faster than KDE and lets me do the things i want. Me like!
