            After years of window manager griping, I can stop whining
            I have been complaining ever since GNOME 2.0, when at least for a while it seemed that metacity was the only window manager that worked well with GNOME 2.0 and my old standby, sawfish, definitely didn't. I'm finally satisfied.

            As of this writing, my only complaint would be the fact that obconf does not (yet?) cover keybindings, but the XML config file is quite easy to edit by hand and it took me only a few minutes to get the configuration I wanted, overcoming my frustration with metacity's limited configuration options.
