Most window systems share more features than not.  I find GNOME to
suck less than Windows, and KDE is just nasty.

Who needs sissy alpha-blended file windows with l33t anti-aliased

Well, GNOME has its place.  One of those places is on my machine.
EFM, on the other hand is, like E itself, a triumph of form over
function.  Have you seen E's nasty confguration language?  I'm sorry,
