    KDE vs Gnome

    i've seen problems on a laptop running xfree without framebuffer. When used under KDE, StarOffice 6.0 beta used to crash every now and then, but especially in the presentation module. The problem didnt appear in Gnome though. As for the speed, KDE seems to run pretty well on my computer, except for netscape that sometimes asks for huge amounts of memory (reminds me of the ancient windoze days )

    hope this helped a bit

    Thumbs up

    All GUIs are hopelessly slow. You gotta learn to love that black screen.
    Maybe it might be faster if you put the swap partition at the front.
    Too bad there isn't some automated utility to help you tweak things,
    but eventually, you may find ways to clear the bottlenecks.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    If the poor guy is trying to learn to program, don't tell him to use VB... I mean, yay, it has a gui.... but it teaches horribubble programming..... the syntax... the syntax would make a programming santa vomit in disgust....

    I'd recommend Delphi as a good learning language with a gui... its a marked improvement on its ancestor, Pascal....

    I don't know if there is Delphi for *nix.. but I do know that there is pascal.. I've seen it with mah own 3 eyes....

    Check out pascal if there isn't a Delphi for *nix... its quite simple, and teaches beautiful programming... most likely because it was developed as a language for teaching programming....

    Unhappy

    Too bad there arent tools to generate and read MS Office-type files (DOC, PPT) in console and there's no support for java applets under lynx ... i dont think i'd need anything else besides that
