Yes. There are still some bodies around.

Amongst other thing, I have been tryig out some of the new Desktop formats. Unity and Gnome 3 .
Gnome 3 has some reasonable possibilties.

I wasn't impressed too. Im still hooked on kde 3; and I know at some point its gonna be harder and harder to keep kde3 when that happens, PhoenixOS should already be based on either android/or chrome os Very Happy

The nice thing is kde 3.5 in the form of Trinity is making a comeback. On top of the Ubuntu and Debian packages there are community packages now for RHEL/CentOS and Fedora 15. I got the Fedora 15 to work I have been unsuccessful getting the RHEL ones to work on Scientific Linux. I was going to send an email to the packager to see if he had any ideas.

There are packages now for Arch, Slackaware, and Mandriva. There was a guy looking at building them for Mageia but there were a few fights and I don't know if he is still working on them or moved on. There may be others that I don't know about.

There is a Debian distro out now called EXE Linux both Squeeze and Wheezy versions for people that don't want to do it themselves. It is not bad the downloads are CD sized very bare bones makes them easy for everyone to try out.

I have released a few distros out into the wild based on Ubuntu/Debian and Trinity they are one offs nothing organized like Phoenix with a forum and constant development. I just don't have the time.

I do now have a script that will install Trinity on a bare (no X windows) Debian Squeeze system. I modified a script that was written to install the Wheezy version of XFCE on Squeeze to pull in Trinity instead. You get a pretty usable distro in just under 1.5GB with it.

I really think that Trinity is in the beginning stages, they are recompiling it to work on newer systems going forward and have made great strides in that area. It is not ready yet but I think as long Pearson keeps at it, it won't be long.
Overall I am very impressed with the patches and additions that they have done so far when you consider how many people used to work on KDE what a small group has turned out is very cool.

A charastic of Gnome 3 , is that , if you are multi-tasking and want to display one task at a time to copy, paste or whatever , if you MINIMIZE a task window it does not show a seletor button in the Panel, but rather puts a Thumbnail of the task on the desktop which can only be seen by another click on a button called " windows " .
This is much slower than the good old window selector buttons in the Panel .
And " Unity desktop " is even worse , it has no Minimizing at all, and running tasks are merely stacked on top of one another on the desktop.

Does alt + tab still work to switch between apps in Gnome 3?

I can't use Unity one of the guys I work with made me spend a week with it because he loves it. I couldn't wait for the week to end I hated it. I am not even using it on my netbook I think it is that bad. Personal preference of course I know some people like it but not me.

I am using Gnome 3 with Fedora 16.
Yes , Alt+Tab does toggle between task windows.
Only , you cannot select one particular task , the way you could with the Panel Window Seletora.
Sometimes when I am constructing a web page , I may have seven or eight tasks running, while I copy and paste bits of text or images from one app to the other. (thats what I mean by multi-tasking) .
