Cogs can think.

I'm a mere, tiny, insignificant cog in a whole clockwork of stupidity.
The little cog that wanted to break free, I am.

Switched to Xfce

And a small additional post to my previous very long one: today I completed the transition from Gnome 2.10 to Xfce 4.2.1. This transition has been in the making for a while now; not because Gnome sucks or anything, it's more because Xfce is a little faster and overall cleaner.

The obligatory screenshot:

I tried XFce too a few weeks ago, but there are few details that really bother me. And their plugin system is not really great, most of the third party plugins (that _I need_ because I don't like the default usability) are buggy and require lots of memory that not even XFce itself doesn't require as much.

Know what I don't like about xfce4? My major bitch is the taskbar at the top: it just takes up too much space, especially on a small screen like mine. I miss the cde-style pining of icons to the desktop.

Really? I've just made the opposite. I've been using xfce as my default desktop environment since august 2003 (beta release 3.99.2), and I switched to gnome when 2.10 got out. I think that everybody needs a change every now and then.
