KDE 4 Cube without compiz (Eye Candy)

,----[ Quote ]
| I have installed KDE 4 on Arch Linux, it is the version 4.2, and I have 
| installed it from the official repositories. 


Taking LXDE For a Test Drive

,----[ Quote ]
| I found LXDE to a pretty nice desktop environment. It’s certainly fast, comes 
| with a reasonable amount of good quality tools, and a nice appearance. 
| There’s room for improvement, however, particularly when it comes to 
| configuration. I would count it as a good option for recent Windows converts, 
| particularly those with older hardware that might have trouble running a 
| beefier desktop such as Gnome or KDE. Has it pulled me away from my beloved 
| Window Maker? I don’t think so, but it’s progressing nicely and I’d love to 
| see what the developers come up with down the road.

Sidux Linux with LXDE - First Impressions

,----[ Quote ]
| I am still new to Sidux and LXDE but I will give it a throrough test.  I use
| my Thinkpad for much of my work when I travel Saigon by motorbike.


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.

,----[ Quote ]
| 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)
