I shifted back to Linux six months back after using Bhindows for long. Today I installed WindowMaker. WindowMaker gives much better look and feel. It leaves lots of things to be customized, which means lots of setup time. But end result is good. It is said to be a light-weight GUI. Of course, in the age of Pentium IV, gigs of RAM, I am not sure how good would that stand. The Yahoo messenger for Linux, unfortunately, is pathetic. Given the kind of usability Microsoft provides, it is going to be hard for Linux to reach many home users.

Have you tried gaim? Also, the best terminal for wmaker is aterm. Aterm was built specifically for wmaker.

Yeah, I installed aterm. And I use the 'transparent' option. ;)

Gaim doesn't work in here.
