I've just installed Helix GNOME (over RH6.2), and when I restarted X...
WOW! :) For anybody who likes cool desktops, this looks really REALLY
nice. Look has been tweaked nicely, main menu is a lot more configurable.
Quicklaunch applet thingy looks nice at last :) Alpha transparency on
images makes such a difference! If you've got a Palm (I don't yet :( ) you
can try out all the development conduit stuff - that comes with it too.
You also get development versions of dia, gimp, Eye of GNOME, basically
it's a really easy way to get the cutting edge of GNOME devel.
Oh the floppy disk formatter dies every time, and dia and ggv can be a
mite unstable, but other than that the whole system is lovely! And Helix
seem to have patched the memory leak from gnome 1.1.9, in case you were
wondering about that.
