On my work PC, running windows 2000 + litestep. When the windows
starts or I logs in, it comes up empty except by desktop image by
choice (or random by day). Almost every application I would run in a
few months are hotkeyed (Win+[A-Z0-9F1-F12]...). Console, Win+S.
Well, it is way below bash, but 90% of my time is spent in vim.
Most enjoyable machine, any friend will sit in front of my machine
dumbfounded, randomly pressing keys without any feed back :)

For my windows machine, I first tried a lot of themes. After a few
months, I hate all of them, so got rid of all the whistles and just
load hotkey module. Now my life in front of it is a dream. Fun, you

We are at the same line now. You know I started babbling when I sense
that MS's OS is overly wronged by a few of our community but not you?
PS: I am not really tring to prove windows can beat linux, just
showing windows is hard to beat and making fun meanwhile :-)
