    I use Ubuntu as my sole desktop operating system and I'm not completely comfortable with the Unity desktop. Unity was fine on a netbook but it has no place on a desktop machine in my opinion.

    I had used the Fluxbox window manager years ago and, while it was a great window manager, I liked GNOME enough to keep going back to the full desktop environment.

    I recently revisited the Fluxbox window manager and am highly impressed. GNOME 3 will usher in the gnome shell, similar to Unity in look and feel, so it seems our beloved GNOME is getting a facelift and I have to find a new environment in which to work. I've even created my own Fluxbox style.

    A huge thank you to the Fluxbox development team for the improvements, this is one nice window manager :)

    I'd like to hear what other Linux fans use as an alternate work environment.

    Just installed Fluxbox 1.3.1 on Mint 11. After playing with Gnome and Compiz, just too much eye-candy distractions for me ;)

    terminal goodness ;-)
