I only use Xubuntu. I started with Ubuntu, but I really love the Xfce desktop. Having said that, I’m very, very curious to try out Unity. What do you think of Unity? I hear very mixed things…
Xfce as a tough jeep in an interesting metaphor, but it is kind of fitting. It’s not fancy, but it does its job very well. And its simplicity is why so many people are re-discovering it in the face of GNOME 3 and Unity.
I’ve never used it, but it seems like hostapd will do this: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1663788&highlight=connectify.
It seems like that’s what will happen when you chose that option. Details are here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsDualBoot
I’m not sure what a naked Padma Lakshmi has to do with FreeBSD, but I think the FreeBSD people might want to get that connection more front and center. I bet they’d pick up tons of new users.
A positive review of Xubuntu 11.04. Unity seems to be driving lots of reviewers to other desktop managers, which is kind of cool.
A well-reasoned review. I guess we XFCE people tend to be rational like that…
This is pretty neat. A Debian developer is proposing turning Debian Testing into Debian Rolling. Not much would change. Mostly Testing/Rolling would be acknowledged as a viable, distribution in its own right.
I’ve been using Gnome Shell (Gnome 3) exclusively for 2 weeks today, and while I do have a few good words to say about it… today’s the day I’m switching to KDE once and for all.
I’ve yet to play with GNOME 3 or Unity, so I can’t speak to the quality of either, but from what I hear and read around the Linuxsphere, it seems like tons of people are moving to KDE because of GNOME and Unity.
I kind of wonder if some KDE developers managed to infiltrate the GNOME and Unity teams.
