Sabayon 6 Roundup - Fluxbox and XBMC

Filed under
Linux

Having looked at the two main editions of Gnome x86 and KDE x64 I've come to the conclusion, that the best way to use Sabayon 6 on the desktop is... to log into Fluxbox. When talking about the installer I briefly mentioned that it launches in a Fluxbox environment if you choose install directly from the boot menu, which it falls back into if things go wrong, and believe me they do.

Both editions have it as a great light weight alternative. The menu is customized enough to allow access to several applications including Konsole, no dead entries. It's a good start and if you want to use it full time you can add the rest later.

I found going into Fluxbox on the KDE spin gave me the responsiveness that I had been looking for, and you can still have all your preferred applications just a click or a run command away.

arkOS Sunset

When I started arkOS back in late 2012, I was moved by the idea of creating a new and innovative software stack and operating system that could bring self-hosted server applications to a wide audience. The vision has always been the same: to give the masses the tools and education they need to properly self-host all of their software needs in one place. This project has spawned many different ideas and micro-projects from many different developers including myself, and has helped contribute (I hope!) to a renewed interest in the decentralized "do-it-yourself" internet we have seen with the rise of projects like Indieweb, Sandstorm, Mastodon and more.
