No, that isn't the case. Actually I'm all *for* creating something new -
but then a whole new system. Either one uses the proven solution- or
you create something entirely new. It would be great to have a Linux
distribution that works like win95 from a users point of view, with no /etc
but a registry, which comes up in X and has _one_ standard window manager.
