DesktopBSD Day 10 - Customizing the Desktop

Filed under

Recently I saw a message flashing by, explaining that Microsoft had patented a method for the computer to read my mind. If that isn’t a recipe for disaster I don’t know what is. I would settle for a computer than can feel my moods and adjust the visual desktop and the system sounds accordingly. On the other hand, how much good would it do for someone with a bout of depression to see the desktop turn into something that could hang on the wall of the Adams family?

While the more intelligent minds start to wrestle with that problem, we will take care of our own desktops today. Customizing the desktop to your own needs and wants is something you want to do quickly and easily. Just like real candy. If you have to prepare the candy from scratch, you loose you appetite along the way. How easy is it to change the look-N-feel of the KDE desktop?

Open source gives us complete transparency into that process. Read more
