    Re: Now I regret once I was a Unity hater

    Unity still isn't up to speed for me. The entire Dock still seems like a poor-man's version of Mac OS X's dock... of course, Linux docks like Docky or Cairo Dock are even more superior, albeit with a...

    Re: Do college students use Linux?

    My university is quite large (48,000 students) and it offers full Ubuntu support with tutorials and software for connecting to the campus VPN. Also, a few of my profs use Linux - Arch linux with the...
  3. Re: Will KDE ever go in a similar direction as Gnome Shell/Unity?

    The new KDE is so modular that it can easily adapt to new features. Also, if anything, Gnome is copying KDE when it comes to emulating the Gnome Shell after KDE's Plasma (not in the UI, but in the...

    Today I decided to do a clean install of Ubuntu on one of my computers, and was once again greeted with the extra step of selecting 64-bit instead of the "32-bit (Recommended)". I have used 64-bit...

    Another Gnome Shell convert here (using Fedora)....

    Another Gnome Shell convert here (using Fedora). Unity has a good design layout, but it is very poorly implemented. It's hard to pinpoint, but GS's animations are far superior to Unity's. I think one...
  8. [SOLVED] Re: Is anyone else thinking of switching to another distro

    I've already been using Kubuntu on my desktop for over a year, so that's not changing. Having tested both Unity and Gnome 3, Gnome 3 with a few tweaks works great on my laptop. Unfortunately, getting...
  9. Gnome 3 Shell Extensions? Why in the world do we need Unity now?

    When Natty was released, I decided to give both Unity AND Gnome 3 a fair chance. Prejudice aside, I laid aside my initial impressions of both desktops from the alpha and beta stages, and gave each a...

    Poll: Re: Gnome 2, Gnome 3, KDE, XFCE, LXDE, Unity?

    I have fallen completely in love with KDE for most of my desktop computing needs. I know many Ubuntu users who've tried KDE have been less than impressed, but from testing other KDE distros, Kubuntu...
  12. Oracle gives up on OpenOffice... a win for open source?

    For everybody who hasn't heard about it already, Oracle has given up on developing OpenOffice due to the mass exodus of community developers to LibreOffice. This begs the question: is this a win for...

    What is Linux? No, really?

    Technically speaking, Linux is a kernel. There's a big divide between what we've come to think of Linux, however, and the kernel Linux. Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSe; nobody will argue that any distro is...

    Re: Unity?! Are you kidding?

    I think Unity is actually a very smart move. Yes, it has several similarities to Gnome shell, but the differences are apparent enough if you try both of them out. For me, however, the greatest...
