    Phoronix: GNOME's 2018 Performance Hackfest Wraps Up In Cambridge

    GNOME's 2018 Performance Hackfest is wrapping up today in Cambridge, UK after spending the past few days focusing on how to better optimize the desktop stack for RAM/CPU/GPU/power efficiency. The fruits of this hackfest will hopefully become apparent with the GNOME 3.30 release due out this September...

    You know, it'd be sweet if there were a Patreon or similar specifically for somebody who enjoys and is capable of GNOME performance profiling, analysis, and optimization. I'm not currently that person, but perhaps I could become him.

      Anything about the gnome shell 4.0?

          Five years after release they're going to start thinking about performance.

          How about don't build your DE around garbage tech like CSS?

              Gnome is abysmally slow. It's about time it would get a performance boost

                Well, nautilus just got rid of its desktop handling code as well (potentially for 3.30). Icons on desktop is one of those things I use regularly for quick access to things I'm working on at the moment. In my home machines, I also keep the launchers for steam and a few of my favorite games/programs sitting there for quick access.

                Just because you don't use it doesn't mean other people don't.

                Yes, when it comes to raw executables and scripts I don't run them via a file browser, but do that through a terminal. At the same time, I suspect that there are users who want to launch programs directly from a file manager and wanting to remove that ability just because I don't use it sounds selfish.

                  I'm more looking forward to the power-usage optimizations that are in 3.28.2 or 3.30. My work laptop could use some better battery-efficiency.

                    Switched to Xfce after Gnome3 has shown its face. Never looked back. Running Xfce4 from Git (100% Gtk3) and am fully satisfied.
