I keep switching between KDE and Gnome. I like the customisability of KDE but I also like the extendibility (not that KDE isn't extendable, just the extensions don't exist) and out-of-the-box good looks of Gnome. It's such a hard decision to make but I always end up switching between them.

Yeah they both really offer great things, don't they?

I checked out a couple of others, I think Cinnamon might come third for me. I'd probably take it over Unity.

Xfce might be a good choice too, it is extensible, lightspeed, easy to use, and can be beautiful.

Former Slackware64/awesome user, unfortunatly I didn't have the time to maintain that shit so I first switched to Debian/awesome and now I don't have any Linux partition left on my HDD.

Here was my guide :mrgreen:

To stay on topic, the Linux Foundation recently released a guide to secure your systems, I advise all GNU/Linux users to take a look on it, here it is :

It’s a small and cheap Linux computer.

Raspberry Pi is dead cheap though. I never really enjoyed using mine, but it was what introduced me to Linux.

I use mine as a print server, allowing me to print wirelessly.

I use my printer to print wireless, modern technology is fun.

As for the RPi, since I've done embedded programming now, I've been wondering if I could some hardware stuff with it.

I know what ASCII is, it's still not impressive. :mrgreen:

I'm mocking Linux pride, because there is a lot of it, when the users' setups screenshots look downright silly. It's obviously a fine operating system.

Just bumping this, just saying that the new release of slackware will be in one or two months.
Also I wanted to add, did someone here already accomplished the amazing goal of a Linux only PC ?

Still playing around with OpenSuse 42.1 with XFCE under a VM.

I love the customization ability. Windows 3.1 style for me. 8)
