XPde desktop environment

I’m posting this from within XPde. It’s not bad. There’s no way I’d use it for day to day activity, but it might be useful for bringing over some of the masses to Linux!
Anyone who’s used to Windows will be immediately at home here. Like Windows, you have “My Documents”, “My Computer”, etc on the desktop.
Just like a virgin install of Windows you can’t do much with it either. There aren’t many applications on the desktop menu.
I’m already missing ALT-dragging windows however. That’s one aspect of the Windows GUI I’ve always despised. No doubt there’s a way to get that working but I CBA!

To cap it off, XPde is one to keep an eye on, and may be very useful in the future! Well worth checking out!
