          That is precisely the user group that I targeted. I use a simple system, just metacity with no clutter anywhere. I hope it does become popular. Marketing it can be a bit of a challenge however ;-)

          I come from a Windows land so naturally I adapted the style. It would be rather trivial to rewrite the UI to support other styles. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

          very nice!
          I really like that the "start button" is optional, and is off by default, since most people won't need it, I believe. The code compiles cleanly and quickly. This could become very popular with the fluxbox, openbox, whateverbox crowds (though some may be put off by the "MS Windows" look)
