that seems to be the idea.

the video for that article was a bit funny. gotta admit, LXDE is a
window manager i will never use twice.

in a recent Debian install, pcmanfm needed several hours of
'customization' to get things working properly. so when i heard the
guy in the video saying of LXDE, 'it's a lot like a windows
interface,' i thought, ha ha... tell me about it.
