MAKING YOUR KDE LOOK LIKE A MAC OS X

Filed under
HowTos

Many people are interested in getting their linux or BSD desktop interface to look as much like Apple's very successful OS X gui as possible. Now, I am well aware that many others are not thus enamored, and in fact profess a real dislike for the look. This article is NOT being written for the latter, and please if you don't like the OS X, don't write and/or comment and put it down. Just ignore this article. But for those of you who are interested in reproducing that look on your linux desktop, here is a step by step method for doing so on the KDE desktop environment. It is not definitive, nor the final word on the subject, but it will give you a pretty good start. Here are a couple of examples:

Full Story.

Yes and no

I really like the Baghira theme, however every time I try to use it, it starts eating system resources. Additionally, it seems Firefox doesn't like it of you use Baghira.

2014: A Banner Year for Open Source

Open Source Meritocracy Is More Than a Joke

In January 2014, Github removed the rug in its office's waiting room in response to criticism of its slogan, "United Meritocracy of Github." Since then, the criticism of the idea of meritocracy has spread in free software circles. "Meritocracy is a joke," has become a slogan seen on T-shirts and constantly proclaimed, especially by feminists. Such commentary is true — so far as it goes, but it ignores the potential benefits of meritocracy as an ethos. Anyone who bothers to look can see that meritocracy is more of an ideal than a standard practice in free software. The idea that people should be valued for their contributions may seem to be a way to promote fairness, but the practice is frequently more complicated. Read more Also: Unmanagement and unleadership
