OSNews, Generic OSes The last time we did this, it was still 2010, so it's been a while. Since I'm having a hard time finding interesting things to write about today (unless you guys want a story about Apple losing another iPhone prototype at a bar, or about Samsung's god-given quest to launch a tablet/smartphone for each number between 3 and 10), let's do one of those old-fashioned and quaint 'show us your desktop!'-things. I'll start.

The low RAM/CPU usage is a side effect, although a welcome one when I'm doing Java programming for my university courses or running multiple VMs with GUIs. I just like that I can open a bunch of windows on a given virtual desktop, and they'll automatically arrange themselves well, optimizing screen space. It's very keyboard-oriented, to the point where I can completely shut off my touchpad and nub-mouse and still be completely productive.
