I disagree. Bloat is bloat. I'm using ion3 on my laptop and it's blazingly fast. I installed KDE on my wife's computer and while it's not a dog it is NOT blazingly fast. OTOH, my wife's only experience was with Windows and she never had any trouble finding her way around in KDE (which is why I installed it for her). If you're replacing WinXP and you want people up to speed fairly quickly then I think KDE is a pretty good choice. -- Darrin Chandler | Phoenix BSD Users Group [EMAIL PROTECTED] | http://bsd.phoenix.az.us/ http://www.stilyagin.com/ | _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
