            Agreed... why hate on Gnome anyway? There's a lot of function to it... Sure, it's heavy, but "most" window managers are.

            If the general populace wanted "light" WMs, then I doubt that SuSe, Fedora, and Ubuntu would be so popular.

            Plus, if you're going to bash it... maybe give a couple of minutes to say what "you" would have written it in.

            Maybe that's because it's a Gtk application? If you've got a better idea or a constructive suggestion, I'm sure the author would love to hear it.

            Don't worry, it's quite easy to install the GNOME libraries on most systems. You should be able to use a few short commands to download and install all the necessary dependencies. In fact most distributions come with GNOME pre-installed, so it might work right away!

            that it requires people to install gnome libraries onto your system.
