@F*tGerman Absolutely agree....except that in my case it's XFCE that I've been using for ever.....on top of Fedora, so no tax to pay either.
Back on topic.....GNOME 3 is absolutely horrible. And remote X sessions are very useful....It's still not clear to me whether Wayland (implemented everywhere) will allow me to use:
"ssh -X -C -l <user_name> -p <non_standard_port> <remote_ip_address>"
.....so I can run X applications on a remote server from my laptop. Can anyone tell me?
