    And then there are the “other” innovations..

    My personal fav is the audiocd:/ IOSlave. View your audio cd as if it was a bunch of Ogg/MP3 files, copy them around as if they were normal files..

    Me, I’ve been messing about in things other than KDE lately, but you can’t knock KDE for a lack of innovation or speed, really. Yeah, XFCE/Rox/WMaker is faster, but by the time you add in all that KDE offers I guess you’re stuck with something as complex (and therefore less speedy) as KDE.

    But.. KDE and Gnome w/Nautilus aren’t even in the same league. I don’t care if you’re talking Debian/RedHat/ Nautilus is slow, slow, slow.

    If you want a nifty little file manager that is blindingly fast and gives you desktop options, try ROX. I was just introduced to it in the last few days, and I have to say that I’m impressed. VERY fast.

    (But, it’s _just_ a file manager.)
