That's what I find repulsive about Gnome. Or, to use Linus' words: I
vote with my feet.

I just press Ctrl-Shift-K to bring up a konsole window. How easier could
it get? I hardly use the menu at all. Of course, I set it up this way,
but then I'm yet to see a default setup that's totally to my liking (and
why should it be, after all?).

I had a look at Openbox and Xfce4, but none has a feature I find
important: the ability to use different backgrounds for different
virtual desktops.
