But probably should. For me it's about using something that will have
a long term development path. I used to like fiddling with a million
config files (even wrote my own launcher thing in X11 years back), not
so anymore.

MATE (as a fork of GNOME) does look good but I wonder if they can keep
up all the good work maintaining their own fork of nautilus, evince,

So for me it's about the path of least resistance, when things change,
I first attempt to retrain myself to use the new defaults/WM and if
not then I find ways around them (such as what I sent before!). This
probably isn't the "linux way".

That and I like desktop eye candy, this probably comes from my Apple
IIe/Mac Plus/Mac SE/30 heritage.
