I know lots of windows power users and devels, any just one guy (and
he i extreme in any other regard) I know switched to "classic view".

I use beagle+deskbar all the time on multiple desktops and don't see
any cpu issues... maybe I'm just lucky? :)

ibm R52 laptop + fedora 6 + beagle + deskbar = no cpu issues
HP nx7300 laptop + fedora 6 + beagle + deskbar = no cpu issues
HP nx7300 laptop + fedora 7 + beagle + deskbar = no cpu issues
noname desktop + opensuse 10.2 + beagle + deskbar = no cpu issues
HP laptop of my girlfriend + linux mint (ubuntu feisty) + beagle = no cpu issues

linux, blog, anime, spirituality, windsurf, wireless
