This I totally disagree!!! I'd rather prefer X to work more
like OS/2 :P. AFAIK, win95's interface is not as Object-
Oriented (OO) as M$ has claimed. OS/2 users should know.
I particularly find win95 difficult to use (I might be from
another planet but I do find it awkward).

That's what X is all about... YOU CHOOSE YOUR FEEL!!
May your preference be twm/mwm/fvwm/ and the list continues...
X is about flexibility. That's why I only have linux on all
my working boxes. :)

I got fvwm95 for a moment but turned back to fvwm2 very
soon. If you'd ask, I'll say that there really is no
advantage the 95-like interface have over conventional
fvwm2 (no flames intended). It does, however, proof how
"customisable" our OS is over some M$-hype. It may also
help newly converted win95 users to feel at home.
