    Great idea :D

    I have always thought X made a bad choice by not allowing a preservation of all child tasks with a switchout of actual window manager tasks. The need to logoff/on to achieve this is...

    We are finding that OO has plenty of horsepower for the publishing she is doing. Anything pub can do, it seems to be able to do better.
