    I too turn off my computers completely when not in use, but it is actually bad for the capacitors as they may degrade when not in use. Aluminum capacitors will degrade (aluminum oxide will spread to the electrolyte) and form leakage currents. Ceramic capacitors will also apparently loose capacitance when not in use, but I don't know the mechanism for those.

    i do both. i like suspend as i can immediately continue where i left off.

    Ok from the comments here i realize that my statement was wrong. But still they can start xontributing to gnome and kde or major upstream project rather than forking and dividing human resource.

    Me too, but with eMMC this hit performance really bad as soon as RAM became full (swapiness = 10). I wish there would be Dell 5855 with HD screen and 4 GB RAM, but there is either HD and 2 GB RAM or FHD and 4 GB RAM. FHD screen obviously drain battery faster so I bought HD version.

    Yeah, because if everyone worked towards a single good desktop everything would be surely better.

    Hail Hydra!

    That said, you're bunching together 3 DEs that are using different codebase, they can't merge even if they wanted.

    Xfce is the One True Desktop for all. Xfce is freely configurable and it runs almost everywhere. I have used Xfce in a 10 inch Pentium III tablepc, with a touch screen pen it is easy to use in a tabletpc too. I got the tabletpc for free and sold it with 40 euros, thanks to Xfce for that.
    You paid 40 euros to get rid of it?

    That said, I'm pretty sure that a PIII tablet does not have enough ram for anything noteworthy in the modern world (Like say a web browser)

    Because good or bad of whatever is subjective

    In Cinnamon you have panel down there, in XFCE default is up while MATE default to both up and down panels... you see, people can't agree even on minor things what is good default...

    So what do you think, say if they could found concensus... on average panel should disappear, on the right or to be in the middle? Canonical even decided panel should be on the left and we got yet another DE immidiately

    Not a joke we don't need to vote on anything further, just make a poll with question "Where panel should be on Linux?" and see the results

    Something like 15 years ago when i saw wm default of openbox i immiditelly fell in love with it, isn't this just great i think that is greatest default of all time someone can get as PC Desktop It require no composition but can do it, it require no GUI toolkit but can do it which means you don't need to use neither gtk nor qt at all there if you want, use these or something entirely else if you want... now load whatever you want and place things whenever you want.


    This is traditional desktop metaphor Make a keyboard or mouse gesture shourtcut and launch steam right from there, do you need anything else? Box is like you buy new and empty house/flat and then decide on arrangement, people might suggest which and where should things be but how i can know for you, it up to you really.





    We only missing middle and right panel major DE options, to have completed circle of linux DE flavours

    Because it's impossible to define "good desktop" maybe?

    Faster than what? The feature is mostly useful for when something takes out electricity in your entire neighbourhood and you don't want to lose process state
