Hi Justin,

Yes, there is someone out there. I fell in love with wm when I started 
using Linux in 2001 (SuSE 8.0, the beginning of KDE 3).
I'm familiar with Linux on a surficial level. So I do not need an 
"integrated desktop environment" to feed the right data into the 5 or 6 
programs I use to use.
Nevertheless it's always nice to have such a system for other users 
together with a graphical file manager being able to show preview icons.

IMHO, all that fuzz about KDE and Gnome is a ridiculous waste of 
development time, totally overstretched and overestimated.
