Is so good to start off the morning with a dose of MS. I don't know
what you mean by recognizing the the problem. I got through the first
page, only to realize that they were talking about the Gnome and KDE
window managers. I don't use Gnome, but my KDE is numbered 1, 2, 3, 4
and the rest of the bar will have a mimimzed icon and it will tell me
what application the icon belongs to and which VD (sounds cureable)
it's located on. MS on the other hand is at this point is incurable.
But I still find that KDE and Gnome are too close to a Windows
mentality hence my use of fvwm2, in which I can have as many virtual
desktops as I like, and minimized icons that follow me to each VD, and
it has legible writing on it to tell me that an application is xterm,
gnuplot or whatever, and better still if I maximize it, it becomes
maximized immediately in the current VD. Even better still, it use a
tenth of the memory used by Aqua, KDE and GNOME and probably a 50th of
WinXP, leaving heaps of RAM for me.

I'll give MS a big round of applause for at least trying to grasp the
concept of simple and free. Oh, and thanks for making my day with a
wonderful MS story before I was caffeinated and nicotined enough not to
