Linux distribution

Hopper

I like swapping distros every time I do an upgrade. This is so much fun and I get to know many distros. It's like driving different cars or ordering different meals.

Arch is also my choice

- flexibility
- rolling release
- pacman and yaourt (one of the best packaging tools)
- documents (covers almost every area)
- community

Arch for me too

After 1/2 a decade of constantly hopping distro's I have stopped at Arch Linux.

Reasons:-

- Constant upgrades - i.e no versions as such
- Has the latest stable packages - i.e :- KDE 4.3.1 was in arch linux's repos the day it was released, so no waiting for software to be packaged by the maintainers.
- I got fed up with the silliness of Ubuntu's update policy - i.e why is the latest stable version of ubuntu not using Firefox 3.5.x yet by default ??
- Yaourt / abs makes recompiling a package very easy - not as powerful as gentoo but nearly there.
- arch seems faster than any other OS (except gentoo)
- Dependency issues are very rare (usually the solution is to wait an hour or so for the mirror to update)

The best

The best and I mean the very best distribution is the one you like best!

Arch Linux

It's the best!

  • Minwaita: A Compact Version of Theme Adwaita for Gnome Desktop
    As you may already know that Ubuntu is switching back to Gnome, this is the transition time for Ubuntu to switch back. Some creators are motivated and creating themes for Gnome desktop, which is a good thing and hopefully we shall see plenty of Gnome themes and icons around soon. As its name shows "Minwaita" it is minimal/compact version of Adwaita theme, the theme is available after some enhancements to make Gnome more sleek and more vanilla Gnome experience without moving to away from Adwaita's design. This theme is compatible with Gnome 3.20 and up versions. This theme was released back in November, 2016 and still in continuous development that means if you find any problem or bug in the theme then report it to get it fixed in the next update. Obsidian-1 icons used in the following screenshots.
  • Gnome Pomodoro Timer Can Help You Increase Productivity
    If you are struggling with focus on something, it could be your work or study then try Pomodoro technique, this method developed by Francesco Cirillo in the late 1980s. The technique uses a timer to break down work into intervals, traditionally 25 minutes in length, separated by short breaks. You can read more about Pomodoro here.
  • Widget hierarchies in GTK+ 4.0
    In GTK+3, only GtkContainer subclasses can have child widgets. This makes a lot of sense for “public” container children like we know them, e.g. GtkBox — i.e. the developer can add, remove and reorder child widgets arbitrarily and the container just does layout.
