OK, now let me play devil's advocate in opposition to my own idea presented

You use Win98 at work, and IceWM at home - switching back and forth.
Somebody else earlier in these [desktop] threads said that if different GUIs
are *too* similar in appearance, then the user expects them to behave
EXACTLY the same.  Good point.

Do you personally run into problems as you switch from Win98 to an IceWM
that is configured to *look* like Win98, but which doesn't always *exactly
act* like Win98?  Does the similar UI subconsciously trip up your brain into
expecting idential behavior, and then problems arise when IceWM doesn't do
things exacly as Win98 does?

Speaking strictly for me, never.
