3D Desktop Effects

Why Waste?

We have such fast computers these days, so I guess we may as well waste our clock cycles on things like a 3D desktop. Personally, I prefer no desktop at all.

re: Why Waste?

Choice is a beautiful thing. Smile

re: 3D Desktop Effects

I've yet to see a single usability report come out with facts showing a 3D UI is more effective at ANYTHING (on any platform).

I'll save my clock cycles for something more useful.

Can be useful

Depends on what 3D Desktop effects you're talking about. Zooming is quite nice and I could see it being quite useful to a lot of people. Wobbly windows on the other hand fall under pretty until you get annoyed and turn it off.

Distro Development: Rescatux and Bodhi

  • Rescatux 0.40 beta 9 released
    Many code in the grub side and in the windows registry side has been rewritten so that these new features could be rewritten. As a consequence it will be easier to maintain Rescapp. Finally the chntpw based options which modify the Windows registry now perform a backup of the Windows registry files in the unlikely case you want to undo some of the changes that Rescapp performs. I guess that in the future there will be a feature to be able to restore such backups from Rescapp itself, but, let’s focus on releasing an stable release. It’s been a while since the last one. UEFI feedback is still welcome. Specially if the Debian installation disks work for you but not the Rescatux ones.
  • Bodhi 4.0.0 Updates and July Donation Totals
    Late last month I posted a first alpha look at Bodhi 4.0.0. Work since then has been coming along slowly due to a few unpredictable issues and my own work schedule outside of Bodhi being hectic over the summer. Bodhi 4.0.0 will be happening, but likely not with a stable release until September. I am traveling again this weekend, but am hoping to get out a full alpha release with 32bit and non-PAE discs next week.
