Re: How much has RH8 gnome been nobbled?

Almost all of it. Are you sure you're looking at sawfish, and not Metacity? Metacity is the default window manager for Gnome2 now, and one of it's goals was simplicity.

Ah, I'll check. Guess there's no Bluecurve for sawfish?

Actually, this'd explain why I couldn't run any sawfish command-line jobbies (comms. pipe not present) ...

But .. but .. that's half the fun!

What about panel configs? That a limitation of [current] Gnomne 2 too? Seems a shame to go backwards so far with the new Gnome (e.g., no cddb-aware cd player). The later Gnome panels even had the cool ability to be 'transparent' over the backdrop - has that *really* all just been vanquished to Gnome 1?

It *is* faster, though - nautilus [sp?] is actually usable now!
