  • Linus is back on GNOME

    And gnome3 has been improving. I complain, and I think extensions were badly done in some ways, and I think a lot of gnome people are in denial. But I'm actually back to gnome3 because with the right extensions it is more pleasant.

    Frippery + gnome-tweak-tool really make a huge difference. I don't understand why gnome3 hasn't just merged them.

    And it looks like some of his complaints will get fixed by 3.8.

      Yeah he is not satisfied -yet. Still he prefers GNOME. Which means the alternatives are more SHITTY. LOL!!! So a true story of life: If you are a cool hacker you use GNOME. Because GNOME is the most extendable desktop outthere. PERIOD!!!! Only scriptkiddies, retards and mums use badly done Windows replicas.

      Be cool, be GNOME!

          Sorry but Qt is doing a much better job of fucking Linux. So yeah it is really great that KDE is dying anyway. Shitty piece of crashware. LOL.

            How is Qt ruining Linux? I use Qt for almost all my projects, simple to use, works great, crossplatform. Whats not to like?

              What you claim is a link to his post is just a link to this forum thread.

                So I am sure you can list some extensions that are possible in GNOME but not in KDE.

                    What is so wrong with KDE I cannot get. If you don't like Gnome then use KDE and be done with it. Highly customizable and a bit slower than gnome I admit but the Ubuntu implementation in 12.04 seems to be pretty solid.

                    Let the flame war begin!

                    Slower?! Lol my ass is slower. Even on old hardware KDE 4.10 is way more responsive than any GTK3 based desktop like Cinnamon or Gnome 3.
                    I have a rather old laptop from 2006 with AMD Dual-Core 1.8 Ghz CPU, 2 GB RAM and a GeForce 6150 Go running Arch Linux 64 Bit. With Cinnamon or Gnome 3 it takes about 500 ms for the damn calender to pop out when I click the panel. With KDE everything just reacts instantly and looks even more fancy with all of its transparent effects. Qt just seems to be a way better toolkit.

                        I actually appreciate that. I don't really need a choice of 17 system monitors - I just need one that works well. The same principle applies across the whole desktop - pick things and pick them well. Of course I'll be up in arms the moment they remove something I use (eg focus follows mouse).

                          Or perhaps, if you're a stupid fanboy or masochist. Unity and KDE are far better than gnome. After reading such bullshit I'm glad Ubuntu will have their own SDK, so developers will focus on it and abandon gnome.

                            I can only assume KDE raped funkSTAR's mother and/or dog, such is the unjustified hatred of what is just another choice of desktop in the FOSS landscape.

                              Can you reshare that link ten times more? It is all you got left. Linus couldnt stand KDE because it is shit. And Otte? Also on gnome. KDE is dead. Hah.
