i saw a new user using gedit to edit files, a while ago. and nobody
told him about it, so presumably he found it via the window manager

in my opinion this is the best window manager. but that doesn't mean
that people who want it can't go fetch it and install it.

mit still uses mh, because it works well in a decentralized environment
like athena. but having said that, yes, they're obsolete. get rid of them.

but it depends what your target audience is.
i prefer links too.
