And not having nautilus run the desktop is just a waste of space with a plain background. The fallback mode doesn't give it any functionality... AT ALL.

I paused linux use last year because school started. It was when gnome 2.32 just started rolling out. Now I can't even get back into it because my favorite DE and its "special" developers don't know how to listen to its users.

Right now XFCE is my alternative. Atleast they know what a desktop is.
I might try out XFCE after hearing this

anyway I have a lot of stuff to do/try
and I still don't know where I'm going to end up

If you stick with some light terminal oriented WM you will never need to worry about your favorite UI getting phased out. Often it will be quicker than navigating a GUI menu too.

I hated it at first, because I was so used to menu based DEs. I like it now, because it's all shortcut based.

thats the reason i use openbox i dont mind any DE really... it doesnt matter when most of your stuff is through CLI, but its nice that openbox isnt very invasive like some of the other DEs with too much junk on the screen and overly complex menus
Kinda meh now...

I used to use Fluxbox on my PS3 and laptop. But that was because I had a 256MB and 1GB memory limitation respectively. GNOME was a memory hog so I had no choice. It was a very nice WM though. That with conky, pcmanfm, and rxterm were freaking powerful as ****. I might go back when I get a laptop for school.

I just don't like it period. Maybe I'm an oldie, but it's just really irritating when I have to open up a nautilus window evertime I download a package and it doesn't appear on the Desktop.

i never download to desktop anyway, just download to ~/downloads and go to it via terminal that i will most likely already have a spare one open for

no reason to ever use a file manager for me

I wouldn't' mind Gnome 3 if not for the fact that they dont display anything on the top bar of the desktop. If they displayed all windows that you had open there I would like it a lot more.

Loving Openbox so far (ArchBang). Gave GNOME3 a spin about a week ago - too much clutter for not enough functionality. The only feature I miss is the top-left-corner exposé feature. I think you can get that on Openbox, though. Skippy, I think it's called?
