>>46719649 So your needs are different than other peoples. What is the big deal? You are not going to use my computer so why care about what I run on mine? A DE is just a wm + applications so I don't see the problem in using something as gnome that provides a pretty and easy to use DE without having to make choices along the way.
>>46719704 Don't forget you can use extensions! GNOME3 may seem pretty inflexible, but that's just at first glance, it couldn't be further from the truth. If you think that it's starting to look good, couldn't hurt to wait for the actual release, unless you're comfortable with Rawhide. Right now 3.16 is still beta (version 3.15.90)
>>46719620 >WE HAVE BETTER COMPUTERS, SO LET'S WASTE MORE CPU CYCLES AND RAM Your stupid fucking mentality is the reason why current computers take the same amount of time and are as responsive as they were 20 fucking years ago. Computers are hundreds of times more powerful and the experience is the same fucking shit. If developers didn't think like you and cared about efficiency the cheapest computer on the market would be blazing fucking fast.
>>46719968 >computers are getting faster >instead of making software better to utilize this, we should stay stuck in the 20th century great logic anon. Worth mentioning, Arch+GNOME is faster than windows 95 was on any hardware I've used. Faster than GNOME2/MATE was on my old desktop. I bet you're using firefox. Why use that when you can use LINKS?
>>46719996 GNOME3 uses about 500 MB of ram at startup last I checked. Any faggot not running a full DE is a hipster. It's called a desktop enviornment for a reasion, it's an enviornment for desktops. Laptops are fine too.
>>46720094 I'm on the nightly builds PPA, and I don't want to tempt fate, but it just gets better and better. The new volume indicator has a silky smooth animation, you can now add more panels and copy paste the configuration.
>>46720124 And how is a DE waste? it's pretty much everything you use. I don't get it. Nobody is saying you can't just use a WM. do whatever the fuck you want. This is why Linux gets so much hate. Because the users hate non stop. I use openbox. But I also enjoy cinnamon and gnome 3.
>>46719996 What an idiot. I agree the ENTIRE RAM should be used for cache, this is what the Linux kernel does, and it's great. But use it intelligently.
>>46720019 I'm talking about responsiveness. You're so used to slow shitty interfaces that you can't even understand what I'm talking about.
>>46720030 Because it doesn't support a graphical interface. Why do you instantly think that because I say current software is inefficient you immediately think that I want to go back to the stone age? Are you a fucking ape who can't not think in black and white?
>better to utilize this The point is that they're not doing this. GNOME Shell doesn't do this. You can't configure shit, you can't do shit in it without extensions, it shouldn't get in your way. And it's slow as shit. Even with animations disabled on an i5 it takes around 100-300ms to show the applications in an i5. What the fuck? Windows 95 could do this in 10ms in a 133MHz.
>>46720061 >500MB >startup Using 500MB for doing literally nothing is supposed to be a good thing? Linux users used to laugh at Windows users for using 500MB at boot. What the fuck happened?
>>46720132 You should make keybinds for switching workspaces/. Shit looks cool as hell. just slides to the next heh. you can set a keybind to go to a certain workspace. I thought it was neat. Cinnamon has gone a far way. And it isn't super bloated or heavy. Shit it ran fine on a 2 Gb ram machine of mine. But as I say. With Arch. Sure that Mint cinnamon is heavier
