For a total replacement of OS I know KDE is the only one to convince the
windows-fanatics, but that will have to wait untill he gets a faster PC.
Luckely the man who are to be convinced care more about the text editing
tools than all other details. Hopefully only this slow PC with a decent
texteditor will convince him that open-source is the best option.

I will take Nate's advice and try with iceWM... Afterall, it doesn't hurt
to try, a slow machine with linux is better than one with windoze!!

Thanks, best regards from Vegard
