I was thinking more of the evolution of the Web browser from document viewer to (in theory) cross-OS/cross-device application platform.

(50? I've wondered about that. I think my posting limit must vary with the phases of the moon or something--seems to change without rhyme or reason.)

I stayed on KDE3 for a long time, but 4 finally got to where I could stand to use it. I actually still prefer Konqueror as a FM, but Dolphin became "good enough" (for me, at least) around version 4.7 or so.

I have never liked Gnome very much, more recent versions even less.

I also still have a special place in my heart for Window Maker--it's simple and easy on resources, which is great for older hardware and laggy remote sessions. Also in part because I know one of the original developers.

These are my computers, not Microsoft's. I paid money for them and I own them outright. I do not run my computers either at or for Microsoft's pleasure. I will not pay Microsoft or anyone else a monthly fee, whether that fee is in dollars or in collection of my personal data, to use my own computers. Ever, full stop.

This. This. And again, this.

It is much easier to suggest solutions when you know nothing about the problem.
