You can get all that from a Unix terminal, too - I use a snappy GUI every
single day.  The key is understanding that KDE and Gnome are *far* more than
just GUIs; both are huge, object-oriented systems with all sorts of stuff
running in the background.

Try running WindowMaker, which offers a somewhat comparable level of
functionality to explorer.exe.  I can guarantee that it'll be quick and
