GNOME 3: A new perspective

Filed under
Software

GNOME 3: A desktop that brings a certain level of ire to the hearts and minds of many a Linux user. When this desktop first arrived, my opinion was fairly high. Why? It was new, fresh, and seemed like it could easily take the desktop world by storm. But then the developers stopped listening to the users and things seemed to fall apart.

It’s been a while, since last I condemned the GNOME 3 desktop to obscurity, so I thought I needed to revisit the topic and give the one-time king of the open source desktop another chance. Believe it or not, I was quite pleasantly surprised at what I found.

Ubuntu Leftovers

  • This App Lets You Reset Ubuntu to Default
  • New Ubuntu Kernel Update Patches a Single Vulnerability Affecting All Versions
    A few hours ago, Canonical published several Ubuntu security notices to inform users about the availability of new Linux kernel versions for all supported Ubuntu releases. The latest update is small but important, and appears to fix a recent security issue that could allow a local attacker to crash the vulnerable system or run programs as an administrator (root). Affecting Ubuntu releases include Ubuntu 12.04 LTS, Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, and Ubuntu 16.10.
  • Linux 4.11 brings improvements for Intel Atom PCs (Bay Trail and Cherry Trail)
    Since Ubuntu 17.10 and other operating systems set to launch later this year will probably use the new kernel, that means there’s a better chance that you’ll be able to use the official install images to get Ubuntu (or other Linux-based operating systems) up and running with minimal fuss. Until then, Morrison has a workaround.
