Evolution of the Desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Clutter is no good on a desktop. It takes 
| too long to find anything. There is a 
| reason the old designs are popular. They 
| work. The new designs work for their 
| designers but not anyone over 50, or under 
| 10. Thatâs about half of humanity. Do what 
| you want with the desktop but leave me 
| XFCE4 and such that boot like lightning and 
| can move as fast as I can. My son likes the 
| new stuff. His hand is just a blur as he 
| clicks on stuff at 1680. I have to squint 
| four inches from the monitor to see any 
| details.


Returning to Linux, where to start? Part 1

| The rest of the package I would rate as 
| average. Nothing really screams wow, 
| nothing else is really lacking. With this 
| you get a solid XFCE distro, albeit a bit 
| fragile that is not as robust as others. If 
| you are a fan of PCLinuxOS, the support is 
| there, the community that is second to none 
| and the packages are customized towards 
| what those users are wanting to see. I love 
| that the links are there in Firefox and I 
| love the line "The distro-hopper-stopper" 
| as I have always felt PCLinuxOS was one 
| that would stick with the user a bit more 
| than others.
