Hi there.  Have you gotten a chance to experiment with any of the Gnome UI?
If so, what is it like?  Similar to Winblows or MacOS X?  i've heard
concepts such as multiple workspaces, and that one can have multiple
desktops within them, but I don't have any notion of them or what to compare
them too.
