The DDE 2.0 Desktop Is Looking Nice
Phoronix: The DDE 2.0 Desktop Is Looking Nice
This weekend marked the release of Deepin Linux 2014 along with the Deepin Desktop Environment 2.0 release that's powered using HTML5. In my testing of the release today, it's been working fairly well and is proving to be quite interesting...
That looks like a pretty great modern desktop.
While it is beautiful, it feels way to sluggish/unresponsive to me... Most of the things load very-very slow on first run, then work ok when the same action is executed the second time... In the Deepin Store, it froze the entire store(top-bar, everything, you can't even move the window) when it was checking for updates.
You can feel it that it uses web technologies... A few seconds delay after every click(the Control Center for example, first loads) is getting very-very irritating...
Over 2 GB of memory usage only with the terminal open and "top" command executing is not even close to "Lightweight"... And the CPU usage was high too...
You just sit with top and you can see a lot of "deepin" processes being spawned and closed, each with 200 MB - 1.6 GB of memory consumption and a few of "message+" processes being spawned...
I was excited initially, but no, thanks... I will keep using DEs that write native software that has proper memory and CPU consumption...
This is what I envisioned. Exactly. Hopefully bunches o' optimization can happen.

Where's the source
I must be looking in the wrong place or something, because I cannot find the source code anywhere. Does this project have a git repo or something?
Yes you must be either looking in wrong place or your searching sucks.
