I recommend platform independence. It is always best in my opinion to create
apps that will work well regardless of the desktop environment.

Both KDE and Gnome are becoming bloated. (I'm not complaining) The reason I
at times prefer fvwm (or even twm) is when I need the window manager (and
desktop) to have a small foot-print in memory.... when I have lots of files
open and am in a heavy development/compile cycle. But when I am playing with
the machine, listening to music, doing some word processing, reading the
mail, and posting to this list.... then I want my fully functional KDE.

Use what works best for you. I'm an old vi (vim) guy, I prefer the command
line interface and raw text files... so what? Only you can evaluate the tools
for yourself.

Only if you are a spamming troll... present company excluded-- no accusation
intended. But if you are serious (and I have my doubts) then taking a look
through the archives first is your best bet.

When I studied the Greek language Greek grammar and spelling were
requirements. Similar requirements applied when I studied Hebrew and Latin.
If you are going to use English on a regular basis, I strongly recommend that
you learn the language well. EASL classes are available the world over. You
clearly know enough English to benefit from such a class. Please do not play
the *English is not my heart language* card and expect to get any sympathy
here because you are not communicating well-- either learn the language, or
do not use it. I only say this because you whined--- no whining! You will
notice on this list that (unless you whine) no one ever gets blasted for
trying to use English as a second language. On the other hand folks get
blasted all the time here for spamming, placing OT on the list, top posting,
generally being a troll, or asking questions (designed to inflame) that have
been discussed ad nauseum.

Have you played around with tcl/tk yet...?

Kind regards,
