    Phoronix: A Look At The Many Improvements & New Features In GNOME 3.32

    Barring any last minute delays, GNOME 3.32 is expected to ship today as the latest six-month update to this popular open-source desktop environment. GNOME 3.32 personally has me quite excited more so for the improvements -- and bug fixes -- over "new" features, but here is a look at some of what there is to get excited about with this latest update to the GNOME 3 desktop...

    Mainly that, yes. Needless to say, Nvidia won't see a penny from me anymore.

    Also I love activities. No other desktop provides something like that.
    I've never seen the point of Activities for my personal use, or of the Unity dash at the time.

    For open windows I switch between them faster with a mouse wheel scroll on the Dash-to-dock app icon (or alt-tab if fullscreen) to maximize it (or a click to minimize it). So did I in Unity.
    For starting frequent apps, I also use the launcher favorites in a much faster way (Unity then Dash-to-Dock) and Ctrl+space with Synapse (or standard alt+F2) is also noticeably faster to start a less frequently used app than searching between 5-6 drawers full of apps inconsistently named.

    Now that I think of it, I completely deactivated Activities because it was irritating when clicking on it by mistakes. Hence I really don't need it.

    Haven't tried newer versions, but it certainly used to be... I ran Fedora with Gnome Shell on a crappy old Atom netbook for quite a few years, and it was no worse than any of the lighter-weight desktops on that hardware...

    My god did all the mentally ill log onat the same time this morning. This might surprise many here but on Linux you have options for a DE.

    What do you mean by deny? I didn't see ernstp denying anything.

    It's true that AMD & Intel are going one way and Nvidia are going the other. Understandably, many Open Source developers don't want to spend time making custom code paths for handling Nvidia's awkward binary blobs. It's even worse when you consider that the awesome Nouveau devs desperately want to give us an Nvidia driver which takes the same path as Intel & AMD, but Nvidia are not doing the minimum level of co-operation to allow it to happen.

    The way to keep the userbase from being foolish, is by ensuring they know that it's unwise to purchase modern Nvidia hardware for use on GNU/Linux desktops.

    And it doesn't even offer a real fucking desktop. What a joke.

    Despite continuous posts saying that the next Gnome release will better support Wayland with the Nvidia binary, each release proves to be a disappointment.
    When will Gnome/Wayland work properly at full speed with the Nvidia binary?

    (I get it, maybe my next GPU will be AMD, but Nvidia hardware has been superior for a long time.)
