Holy whoa http://mate-desktop.org/ is FAST. If you are on Ubuntu and cursing your choice of either Unity or Gnome 3, give this a try.

The notional value of the world’s derivative bonds was in the region of sixty trillion. Exactly ten times the economic output of the entire planet, which is around six trillion. That means that the gap between what economists and what the world’s economic forces and the banks thought they had to play with and what actually existed was fifty-four trillion. That would seem to me the depth of the hole we are in.»
