Choosing window manager for fc17
 
Hi,

Some time ago I installed fc15 with gnome3 in fallback mode, I believe
it was called? Anyway, I'm working on migrating to fc17, and would
like to get an idea of other window managers that might now be
available, since from what I hear, gnome3 still sucks.

I'll probably install fc17 in a vm first to play around for a while,
so thought someone might know of a resource that describes the latest
window managers?

I have an ATI Radeon HD 5760, I believe. How well supported is that
now? I'm upgrading primarily because I can't get the HDMI output to
work on fc15, and really hope it's progressed since then.

I've searched for a window manager HOWTO, but haven't been able to
find much, so any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Alex

I'm using XFCE, on a built-in Intel 4000 video.

I don't use the "latest" window manager, I use the one that doesn't
jerk the run out from under me every time some developer gets a new idea:

http://home.comcast.net/~tomhorsley/wisdom/stick/stick.html

Essentially nothing has changed in my setup for years now.
I can be productive rather than running around trying to figure
out how the heck to use the new helpful interfaces :-).

Ah, awesome. I've used fvwm for years in the past. Can't believe gnome
hasn't made enough progress that the simplistic fvwm would even be a
contender.

Are we fedora users missing out on something big with all the
canonical desktop hype?

Thanks,
Alex
