Ohh, I am not openig that can of worms :-)
Just like Windows Clasic on Windows 200/XP/7, I liked Gnome 2 on Linux,
and logical move, closest thing after Gnome 2 was dropped, was MATE.
Shiny icons, transparency and smooth menu's are things I disable because
they distract me from actual work. Any DM that fits my work demands I
will use without complaining.
