Interface tricks could be a Linux treat

Filed under
KDE
Software

I miss the days when I would get excited about the latest desktop interface to come from the GNOME or KDE projects, or downloading and installing the umpteenth Linux distribution on the continuing quest to find Linux nirvana.

The truth is, though I still use Linux on a daily basis, I am just not as interested in making sure I have the latest and greatest any more. I have the most recent version of openSUSE running, but not really because I want the newest shiny - I just want the security updates. I don't have a particular affinity for green, either, but I am not motivated to really go out and change the desktop theme. When a browser and a text editor are your constant visual companions on a daily basis, then what's the point?
