What kind of beer?
Here Jupiler is my favourite but you should all know Stella Artois,
sicne we keep the best and export the inferior ones...

No man, but I must say Gentoo is a really good distribution and the
others are used by a bunch of tree huggin' hippie crap! :-p

It's called xfce

(personally I use None Of The Above, just fluxbox + command line, but I
had a play with xfce recently and it seems nice enough).

That has been my experience. KDE is .. flaky. For any job that requires a
computer to work 24 / 7, the clear choice is GNOME. KDE is pretty, and more
customizable .. and, I genuinely like KDE better, but GNOME is where I do my
work ..

I thought you guys turned up your noses at anything except Trappist or
Abbaiale beers.

I was happy to drink Jupilier (especially in the Falstaff) when I was
working in Brussels but a Belgian friend classed anything that wasn't
Trappist or Abbaile as "industrial beer" and wouldn't touch it. I also
liked Chimay Bleu a lot.

Such mystical, transcendental questions have no solution. It's like asking,
what is the value of pi?

XFCE is GTK+ based so is more a cut-down version of Gnome rather than
the QT-based KDE.

Not really, we like all of them... :-)

Well thats a bit snobby if you ask me!
It's also the first time I'm confronted with such a point of view and I
must say that your friend is talking crap.

We don't look down upon industrially produced beers, only the quality of
the liquid matters (and taste is debatable...)
Some trappists and abbey beers are also produced on an industrial scale
you know.

And last but not least: if you go out and only drink Duvel, Chimaym or
Chimay Blue for instance you'll get quite ****ed up in the end but with
normal beers it's easier to move larger quantities! :-p
