Now, that's really funny, since I'm also a fluxbox user myself, but I have
been wondering: would it be possible to use fluxbox with Gnome with at
least some of the bells and whistles that metacity supports?

That said, all the times I tried to use a Desktop Environment (Gnome, KDE)
on my own box, I ended coming back to my fluxbox install.

My main problem with KDE is that its user interface is "way too modern". I
would apreciate if KDE had, by default, something less "artistic" (with
less visual pollution) and more functional, like Gnome is nowadays, but I
couldn't *easily* tweak it to have a "sober" appearance.

Cheers, Rogério.
