Working through Window Managers...

(Comments)

OK, I am working my way through window managers, desktops etc ... currently xfce is the winner... I could personally use some of the blackbox or fvwm-style options but I think many newbie users would get confused. rox is interesting but wierd ... At least xfce gives me a basic usable panel, nice window manager, etc...

What I want now is an integrated tasklist in the panel instead of a separate window... seems that this can be done in the development version, 4.2 - nice screenshot also shows a nice start menu etc. I want it to be simple to install and maintain which currently means Fedora packages (I might compile xfce 4.2 myself just to look at though). newrpms is a good repository for xfce packages that includes a few of the available plugins, but not the taskbar plugin for the panel :-(
