    Just a thing with the poll. And not to sound rude or anything (correct me if i am wrong).

    But aren't Gnome, KDE and Xfce, Linux Desktop Environments and not window managers, where the default window managers for these environments are metacity, kwn,and XFwm respectively.

    Also aren't Compiz and Compiz-Fusion two different window mangers, where Compiz-Fusion is the combination of Compiz and Beryl.

    So shouldn't the poll be:

    • Metacity (Gnome Default as used in Ubuntu)
    • kwm (KDE Default as used in Kubuntu)
    • XFwm (Xfce Default as used in Xubuntu)
    • Compiz-Fusion
    • Compiz
    • Beryl
    • Other
    • Whats a window manager


    But anyway when I run a Desktop Linux Box, I tend to go for the Gnome Environment with metacity as i found that the Compiz-Fusion/ Compiz/ Beryl mangers are to advanced for me hardware (but that will soon change).

    While that is true most people probably think of Gnome v. Metacity and likewise with Xfce and KDE. As for Compiz and the likes not many people, as compared to Gnome etc. use them so I kinda tried to group them together. But beryl is a lot different than compiz, at leaset they were to me. No this is not rude. But I aggree with you about window manager != desktop environment but since they are like this in the poll I would like to cary it over to the magazine like this.

    Something that might be interesting is to run this poll again after KDE 4 comes out and Compiz Fusion is included in Gutsy. Maybe for the January issue.

    Look for the next one! And tell friends, I know we can get more votes if we try. Also I posted this only two weeks before the deadline, the next question can be posted by anyone who wants, just start a new thread. If two people post then we will have to choose i guess. But check with Ronnie first.
