On the topic of DEs – I started with GNOME2 in 2008 and went to Xfce after G2 went away, then MATE and am very happy with it. The Caja FM is perfect for my needs. MATE has just the right amount of config options – not too much and not too little.
I’ve been listening to these podcasts in “catch up” mode, and this one typified why I’ve been enjoying them so much. I haven’t fully comitted to a Linux desktop future, but the measured discussion about what a desktop environment really IS was food for thought. All that and a pointer to the brilliant BARRIER (installed and configured immediately after the podcast) means I’m really engaged. Thanks!
