It would be fine when browser-bookmarks are free exchangable. In R4 I couldn't solve problems with it (for instance Firefox<->Chrome or Firefox<->Epiphany. I still have R3 which does this fine.
I like the moving of icons on the desktop (thanks!) a little bit smoother. Maybe some finetuning? :wink:
And a good menu-editor (something like alacarte, so full edit) please.

I have been using the Enlightenment desktop....WOW!!!
Agree.There are a few problems, but generally it's a classic.Besides, this is a DE with an idea similar to GNOME 3, but instead of one experience for all devices(PC, tablet, mobile, etc) it has several 'Profiles', ranging from 'mobile' to 'scaling'(well, thats what I can see in the first setup, I've actually only been using scaling and standard), and you can enable composite, if your PC holds, of course.The right click is replaced by a left, probably for mobiles and tablets, but you can switch it back to the right, if you want.
Also, from synaptic, why don't you add 'light-themes'. It is the package that has the 'ambiance' and 'radiance' gtk engine, the ones for ubuntu 11.10(And 11.04 too?), and maybe oxygen-gtk?It lt's the gtk engine that looks like KDE. And maybe an application of Impress' and Powerpoint's nature(which is notably absent), and allow to switch DEs in LXDM without reinstalling it first. Oh, and Midori web browser (as things turned out, the one available for Natty is 3.0.2, which is very, very, unstable.The one available for Oneiric however, 4.0.2, is about as stable a Chromium would be, I think.A more beautiful GO! icon(Like the one I dreamed of in an above post).

Midori does not work with Hotmail...
Why? Does it have a segfault? Apparently, Midori used to have segfaults all the time when at weather.com.
Watt OS R5 uses at last the long waited Network-Manager who does recognize modern USB 3G pens, by menu and country. I have a small box computer, ALIX 1.D hardware, 256 MB RAM, where Watt OS proved to be the best distro. It is able to work with this battery powered mini computer, who is intended to be left alone with a solar power recharger equipment, for data connectivity.
However Network-Manager has a bug in all the Ubuntu 11 line and everywhere else recent: it does not auto-connect at start or after a signal loss. It works well manually. For a computer left alone some hundred miles away you can see the desvantadge of this bug. There is a command line option for enable broadband connection but it does not work with shell scripts, not without a too complex set anyway.
By wish is Watt OS R5 could talk with Network-Manager for a solution for broadband automaticy start and reconnection after signal loss.
