I love XFCE.. It has some body to it and runs well to boot. Never tried
it on IRIX though - probably cause I don't have an SGI :-) I did mean
windowmaker, you're right. Right now I normally use Blackbox myself just
because it's easy to tinker with and gives me multiple virtual
desktops. Then again, I don't have enough power in any of my systems to
really enjoy gnome or kde.
