I actually did after a recent mention on this list. It _does_ look very
nice and shure performs well on my old hardware. The one think that keeps
me from switching to it is the lack (?) of (customizable) keyboard short-
cuts. I currently use pekwm, and i can do _everything_ from the keyboard.
Finally a good use for this windows key ;-)
Did i miss some obvious thing or is this really intended?
