Hash: SHA1

LXDE, A stable and lightweight desktop environment.

,----[ Quote ]
| LXDE is the abbreviation for Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. LX also 
| stands for LinuX. You will find it different from other desktop environments, 
| due to its discrete components, which can be used independently and with few 
| dependencies.    


Features of Phoronix Test Suite 1.4

,----[ Quote ]
| Phoronix Test Suite 1.4 "Orkdal" will be released tomorrow, and while this 
| release is coming just two months after the release of Phoronix Test Suite 
| 1.2, there are in fact quite a few changes for this Q4'08 release. In two 
| months time we have pushed out five development releases of Orkdal, there are 
| over 220 official changes, and the diff output between the Malvik and Orkdal 
| releases amount to over 20,000 lines of code. The most prominent features in 
| Orkdal are compatibility the Mac OS X operating system, support for Cascading 
| Test Profiles, support for Self-Contained Test Profiles, new modules being 
| added, updates to all in-tree test profiles, WINE test coverage, and improved 
| hardware/software detection.          



Trying out LXDE

,----[ Quote ]
| This is my first time to try out LXDE. I am curious about it and there are
| certain things that I am glad are in LXDE. For one thing, Alt+F2 also pops up
| a run dialog box so I could type the name of the application I want to run.
| There are even suggestions as to what I could run when I typed the first how
| many letters of the application’s name.


Lighten up your desktop.

| For those of you who have older machinery or just wish to extract every ounce
| of speed from your machine there is a new offering that has just hit the
| Debian Lenny repositories. It is called LXDE. You can find more information
| about it from their web site here.


Lightweight GNOME alternative emerges

,----[ Quote ]
| A fast, fast-booting, implementation of GNOME aimed at netbooks and older
| hardware has emerged, and shows "a lot of promise." LXDE has already stacked
| up a heap of distribution partners.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
