|What I don't like are the mini-icons on the command menus. They look amateurish and reduce the professionalism of the product. They are crude, ill-matched. They are so low in resolution that they are not easily distinguishable from each other and they are distracting when trying to read the commands on the menus. The same can be said of the heavy font that is used on these menus in JWM... it is too hard to read.|
1. You can remove the icons by editing your .jwmrc file.
2. Or you can find icons you like to replace the default set.
3. You can use a font you actually like by editing .jwmrc.
|JWM is no better than the Microsoft desktop. Fluxbox offers functionality that makes it easier to organize the desktop.|
Oh geez -- there's nothing "wrong" with a Microsoft desktop. Most interfaces are common whether it's MS, Mac, or the more common X desktop environments. All a window manager does is (optionally) decorate application instances and keep them separated. JWM isn't a desktop environment, and it does EVERYthing fluxbox can do -- and some of those things, it does better than fluxbox. It's very configurable, too.
|the something that can be controlled... the capitalizations used for captions on the 3.4 desktop. They are whacky. Siag starts with a capital letter. xGVW doesn't. Maybe some are all lower-case. I don't have them all in my head, but I remember it's a hodge-podge. |
That has nothing to do with DSL, it's a matter of each project. Does DSL need to include symlinks with every imaginable variation? Why stop there? Why is KDE capitalized and Xfce or Gnome not?
|Coming from Windows, the bootup options are a completely unfamiliar concept. |
They wouldn't be so unique if people would read the documentation first -- doesn't matter if it's Linux, Mac, or Windows, the biggest hurdle to getting the most out of any system is the user's knowledge (or lack thereof).
