25 Kde is not a possible solution for you? I'm just asking, I do not want
26 to start a flamewar about which is the better/worst. :)
28 That's the reason why I have kde and xfce on my machine. I always have
29 a fallback plan. I spend I few weeks for Unity from unity-gentoo
30 overlay and the big gnome-3.8 update messed up everything and I spent
31 almost a week the get back Unity, and I gave up. During this week I
32 was able to work on my machine because I had kde.
