    I only use gstreamer/totem for streaming & only because totem has support for xspf playlist files. Otherwise I'd stay clear of gstreamer.

    I don't know why people are focusing on GTK2 vs GTK3 when the real argument for forking Gnome2 was maintaining the usability.

    I'm also not sure why certain people think Mate will be frozen in...

    I agree. I'm ditching Gnome when 3.0 comes out. The whole Gnome shell crap is just horrible.
  10. Poll: On the DE conspiracy

    I just went to look at the status of the radeon driver for r500 series & you're right, it looks really good! I'd switch drivers right now if powerplay was working.
