    Phoronix: GNOME Shell + Mutter See Changes For Tracking Software Rendering, VNC To Toggle Animations

    GNOME Shell and Mutter saw a set of patches land today for GNOME 3.36 that have been around for a few months and deal with the tracking of software rendering and VNC usage where GNOME Shell should in turn disable animations to ease the rendering workload...

    Another nice one from GNOME, the default Linux desktop.

    Nice contributions from Canonical, Red Hat, Endless.


    It was my turn.

      Just the usual Merge Fest just before final freeze kicks in

      Best part is that Christian Hergert joined the party.

        It was my turn.
        ...and I suppose it's my turn to be the other side of the exchange. Ahem...

        "default Linux desktop" is a good moniker for GNOME. Unixy operating systems have a long tradition of having garbage defaults that you're supposed to change, reinvent, or monkey-patch. That's half of what the UNIX Hater's Handbook was about. Hell, Unixy OSes have a long tradition of the trashiest stuff being the stuff that big companies took a vested interest in.

          Sorry, but the best part of that book was the anti-foreword, written by Dennis Ritchie himself :-P

            orangemanbad Debian popcon stats are fully linkable.

            Please share your source so we can verify. This is going to be super fun

              I seem to remember seeing a poll done by Fedora with similar results, but I can't find it.
              I'd be shocked if Fedora showed anything other than GNOME as the highest, given that it's regarded as the GNOME-reference distro.

                Popcon is so much better than obsolete, biased or low-sample sources like you provided. Here’s fresh popcons for you.

                  Britoid You probably right. RHEL/Centos deprecated KDE. Fedora plans to remove some test coverage on XFCE and KDE.

                    This popcon view was configured to show trends over years and only count regular usage. Minimum samples are 10000ish.
