Plasma + KWin = beautiful !

kdedevelopers.org: Until last week I was still running good old Slackware 12.1 with KDE 3.5.something. To make it short: it simply looks beautiful and it did not crash once.

kdeatopensuse.wordpress: Some apps are too lazy to ask the user or even claim that not asking the user – not even once – is the best solution – and even more astonishing: for the user’s good. So basically they claim to be smarter than the user or just do not care about the user’s resources or opinion.

blog.martin-graesslin: Now with the GSoC application timeline ended, I feel like blogging about some more ideas what I want to see in KWin in our next releases.

User experience, one pixel at a time

KDE

hugo-kde.blogspot: There's been (notably) quite some discussions about how information and functionality should be presented to users, organized and formulated, in order to be complete but not overwhelming, sexy, gratifying, and elegant.

advogato.org: At some stage the seminal KDE vs Gnome paper vanished from its original home, and it set me thinking. What are the fundamental differences between Gnome and KDE development?

Pimping my Desktop: have KWin Desktop Effects improved in KDE 4.6.2?

Filed under
KDE

fitzcarraldoblog.wordpress: KWin Desktop Effects in past releases of KDE 4 were lacking in comparison to Compiz. After installing KDE 4.6.2 recently I decided to see if there has been any progress, and was pleasantly surprised. Although KWin is still not quite up to the standard of Compiz in all areas,

linuxblog.darkduck: I am long established fan of KDE3 (Trinity). You can guess now that I'll talk today about KDE3 implementation. But what will be the root? Never guess! The root of KDE3 will be... Ubuntu!

NVIDIA reveals GPUs for blade servers, Linux desktop support

VMworld 2015 NVIDIA has announced the second version of its Grid desktop virtualisation software, complete with a pair of GPUs for blade servers. NVIDIA is pitching GRID as a hardware offering tuned to the needs of graphically-demanding desktop virtualisation (VDI) workloads. If that sounds a bit exotic, consider environments like the resources industry, where on-site engineers need CAD and modelling tools, but miners are loathe to deploy desktops in the remote sites where stuff gets dug out of the ground.

Running Linux Mint 17.2 Xfce

To make a long story short: I’ve been running Linux Mint 17.2 Xfce for about a week now, long enough to take about a dozen screenshots (some of them included here), edit them in GIMP, watch about ten episodes of “Mad Men” on Netflix, and write this review. So far, the system has been responsive and stable, and other than slight changes in a couple of panel applets, I haven’t even noticed that I’ve changed OSes. As I said: business as usual.
