It is an issue, but surely it has already been discussed? See the GNOME summaries
for previous weeks.... could Havoc comment on this? I thought the decision was to
replace E as the default window manager for GNOME, so we could have something
better suited and better integrated, not to mention faster. Candidates for a
replacement were things like icewm-gnome, wmG, gnome-wm, and some others.


PS For the record, I strongly support the use of icewm as a default - it's
certainly a significant amount faster than E, having had E installed until last
week, on the default minimal theme. Not to mention much nicer to use, and
sufficiently configurable to make it almost as pretty as E.
