Inspired by a screenshot on the 'Why Linux is better' website from macstar's sig I decided to see if Window Maker is still in the Fedora repos.

As you can see it still is, and still looks pretty much like it did in 1998.

i installed project neon to get a view of the latest kde beta, and while its still incomplete i dont think it looks hideous at all. actually i find the screenshots very impressive.
