Today's High: 75-80
Thursday's High: 35-40
WTF? Did I mention it was snowing a week ago?
At least I get to wear my Birks today.
After much effort, I finally have a usable hacking environment. I picked up a Tyan s2495, Athlon XP 2700, a gig of RAM, and installed Red Hat 8.0 on it. My current laptop is still running Red Hat 7.2 with xfs (predates the stable release of ext3), so this was my first time getting 8.0 up and running.
metacity is the least configurable window manager that I've ever used. Luckily, the code is small and readable, so I was able to easily hack in some window behaviors to keep myself from going insane. Releasing a window manager for production use that doesn't support configurable mouse bindings? Come on... Red Hat should be able to do better than that.
Minus the initial metacity nightmare, 8.0 + Xft-enabled Phoenix is quite nice.
