enlightenment! Rhe coming release 17 seems to be very nice.
The problem with other desktop solutions than KDE or GNOME is: you
cannot put icons on the desktop which is kind of standard since Windows95.

of Konqueror as a file-browser and possible replacement for FireFox
as a web-browser
-- Look at Koffice as a replacement for OpenOffice.org (this is meant
for kids, and they do not really need a fully fletched office suite
when they uses computers for learning. Then browser applications
with teaching tools are the thing to use e.g Moodle and
KOffice won't run on Windows machines, will it? Has anyone tried this
with CygWin? The charme in using OOo is: the pupils can use it at home, too.
Thank you for your initiative. I think it's worth thinking over it.
