Hi, Mico!

I'm risking to get a pail of slops on my head but stupid, braindead,
shit-styled, awful, G*d damned, and despite this widely used desktop
environments like *nome, *DE, *FCE etc are much more user friendly than
progressive (and marginal, be honest) ones.  I use Ion since 2nd
release and quite bored to fix daughter windows properties for some
poorly designed (actually just not Ion-designed) applications.  Last
times I run *nome-panel before Ion in my .xsession to get a bit of
usability and comfortable mounting also.

I like Ion.  I like its minimalism.  But actually I like the
possibility to create/destroy as much desktops as I want and make it
dynamically.  That is all I really need.  Now I'm looking for
possibility of this in *nome DE or FVWM, which can be runned beneath
*nome DE.  If I'd do, I'll leave Ion forever.  Man must be ready for
hard decisions, yeah...
