Linux So, it's no secret that the Linux desktop - at least, the GNOME-side of things - is a bit in a state of disarray. Unity hasn't exactly gone down well with a lot of people, and GNOME 3, too, hasn't been met with universal praise. So, what to do? Linux Mint, currently one of the most popular Linux distributions out there, thinks they are on to the solution with their latest release, Linux Mint 12.

This makes me wonder... What are all the "desktop environment" developers smoking?? Clearly they all got their stash from the same suppliers. I'll stick to Ubuntu 10.04 for a very looooong time to come, or simply switch to something like the good old window managers (JWM comes to mind). At least that way my computers stays usable and fast!

win xp "classic" ui & no wallpaper.
I think I've seen a tweak app that creates corrals or regions on desktop, but I've never tried anything like that.
Instead, I align icons based on what they do relative to my app windows do.

After some shock to XP flings the icons to the left side (tantrum), Desksave restores the arrangement.

The oversize|playskool|widget disease is akin to the ribbon disease.
