| Raphael,

Well, despite this being OT...

These applications do not have any equivalents among other DE's or
free software in general, IMHO. Besides that, I already stated that
I was curious in _trying_out_GNOME_2_. That is, I want to see it.
People can tell me much, and screenshots remain screenshots.

But, since I only want to try it out (though with my favourite app-
lications, and there's chances I stay with it _if_ I like it), I would
like to use premade shellscripts or ALFS-profiles. Without them, it's
just to much work if you're not sure.

That's why I asked here.

I hope I could answer your questions regarding my behaviour of 
utilizing a computer.
