DesktopBSD Day 10 - Customizing the Desktop

Filed under
BSD

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 laptops – ones not running any commercial software whatsoever – have been the holy grail for free software fans for years. Now, with the introduction of libreboot, a truly open source boot firmware, the dream is close to fruition. The $730 laptop is a bog standard piece of hardware but it contains only open source software. The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
