Thanks.. Mandrake contributors uploaded it to Mandrake cooker but I
didn't found enough time to test it :))

I agree with you, it fixed almost all my critics :))

The only thing which prevents me to switch Mandrake cooker to Metacity
is the "don't focus new window" problem.. But Havoc seems to have fixed
it in CVS.. So, I guess next version of MetaCity will probably be GNOME
2 default WM for Mandrake too :))))))

And it seems to be lacking some translations too (hint, hint :))

Havoc, can we have a new release, please :))

I would say : it should "feel" right (following Havoc's article about
GUI design)... Since metacity CVS seems to "feel right", I think it is
becoming mature :))
