You always come up with Nice Idea.  I even thought about light version
of X but I just love KDE look :).  I thought if they see it would be quite
delighted.  Guess personal taste with my high end conf system would work
good but not for low end conf systems.  (Sawfish)Hmm i shall think
about this one.  Can you show me some screenshots :).  I searched google
but couldnt find it.
