Re: Some general facts about panel and gnome

Why couldn't the pager stuff be done outside the WM? I remember seeing a
pager for KDE that had the same snapshotting functionality as E's pager
minus the zoom. Is anyone working a snapshot like pager or extending the
existing GNOME pagers? That would be nice I have to agree. 

The Fx stuff is nice too but I find it non-productive to have a window
slide across the screen and having to follow it. Sliding on desktop
cleanup is nice though. If it can be done, and turned off, why not?
