GNOME 3.5.2 first sights

Filed under
Software

Not the whole GNOME stack has reached version 3.5.2 so we can’t review it just yet. But we can share what Matthias Mclasen post in his blog -and enrich it a bit Smile

User Menu, Font Viewer and accessible high contrast theme are some of the first changes.

Believe it or not, there is no Suspend option! One of the most controversial features of Shell, has gone away and we now have once again the standard Power Off by default. Suspend option will be still available with the < alt > ernative button.

The Online Accounts buttons is also hidden under the System Settings, and that is the position it belongs. You just need it once to setup your online accounts, I never understood why they had it on a quick menu.

What is open source? Licensing, history, and more

Another example of open source: You wouldn’t buy a car with the hood welded shut, so why do we buy proprietary software? If you can’t see what’s going on and see what’s happening under the hood then you’re stuck with the car exactly the way it is and that might not be so great. While some people are fine with that, computer geeks shouldn’t be. We should want to get in there and tinker with it. Read more
