Todd, nope, that's WindowMaker. But its a cousin of AfterStep, hence the similarities

Ahhhh, Windowmaker. I should have recognized it. It's been a few years since I ran Linux, but I'm wiping XP from my drive this weekend and reinstalling Linux. How does Windowmaker compare speedwise and bloatwise to KDE?

WindowMaker is MUCH less bloated than KDE. In fact, they are not even in the same ballpark. WM has pretty much no dependencies (you'll need a few graphics libraries though if you want graphics, obviously). Other than that, you just need X and a compiler. A new version was released the other day and it didn't take more than 5 min or so to compile. KDE, on the other hand, has a bazillion dependencies and one time I tried compiling it the thing was still chugging away 8 hours later. You decide

After I install Linux this weekend (and remove most of the junk that Red Hat installs and turn off the unnecessary services), I'll Download Window Maker and give it a try. Thanks.

Here's mine on my P166 @ 266 with 64 RAM happily running XP PRO. I'll get another picture on here soon of my desktop of my P3 1 GHZ system. But notice in this, I letterboxed the panoramic picture I took of those cats. Cool, eh?

That's Mozilla 1.4 with the Lindows skin. Mandrake Linux now does anti-aliasing, so the fonts in Mozilla look a whole hell of a lot better.

As for the file size, KDE comes with a program called KSnapshot, which is what I used. It seems to do a very good job as far as quality and file size goes.
