30 Days In GNOME vs. 3 Days In KDE

Filed under
Software

At the end of 2006, I prepared myself for a "survival experiment". Using a fresh Slackware 11 install (on the laptop), I decided not to touch my home desktop for a week (which features GNOME under Debian testing-unstable, and was still up and running for routing purposes), and only use WindowMaker (with ROX-Filer for a more pleasant experience) the whole week, as a way to make me "forget" my typical GNOME habits.

After a week, I switched to KDE for 3 days, on the same laptop.

— § —
The idea of making this experiment came from an article I've read in the British LXF #87, pages 56-59: «30 Days With GNOME», by Graham Morrison. After having read how a KDE fan was able to "survive" after a month of immersion in GNOME, I thought I could undergo a similar, though opposite process: how can a GNOME fanboy survive in KDE?

Full Story.

Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS Delayed Until February 2, Will Bring Linux 4.8, Newer Mesa

If you've been waiting to upgrade your Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Xenial Xerus) operating system to the 16.04.2 point release, which should have hit the streets a couple of days ago, you'll have to wait until February 2. We hate to give you guys bad news, but Canonical's engineers are still working hard these days to port all the goodies from the Ubuntu 16.10 (Yakkety Yak) repositories to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is a long-term supported version, until 2019. These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
