LXer: Don't forget one of Linux's best features: How to use multiple workspaces

Monday 9th of March 2015 05:31:37 PM
Windows users have long been jealous of workspaces—also called virtual desktops or multiple desktops—on Linux. But many Linux desktops have hidden this feature by default in recent years. Soon, Windows users will have multiple desktop workspaces enabled by default—and many Linux users won’t. That’s crazy! Virtual desktops have long been one of the standout features of the Linux desktop, and it shouldn’t be lost. Here’s how you can get started with workspaces on Ubuntu’s Unity or another desktop environment today.

Reddit: I'm a total Linux noob, but I have some questions

Sunday 8th of March 2015 03:44:33 PM

Hey guys. I am a new person in the Linux world. I've installed it before, but always removed it short after only because I couldn't keep up with the demands and some simple stuff. Now, I did things always - installed stuff, etc; but my question is why is it so hard? I can handle the Terminal and stuff like that, but why can't Linux have an Installer app which will handle unpacking or stuff like that like Mac OS X.

Thanks. Please don't downvote this, and explain things kindly haha! :)

Jessie Release Date: 2015-04-25

We now have a target release date of Saturday the 25th of April. We have checked with core teams, and this seems to be acceptable for everyone. This means we are able to begin the final preparations for a release of Debian 8 - "Jessie". The intention is only to lift the date if something really critical pops up that is not possible to handle as an errata, or if we end up technically unable to release that weekend. Please keep in mind that we intend to have a quiet period from Saturday the 18th of April. Bug fixes must be *in Jessie* before then. Read more
