Budgie in its current form is based on GTK, but Budgie 11 is being completely rewritten in Qt and is also being released in Q2 2017.

Sol will be replacing eopkg soon as the package manager.

Solus is a stable, up to date, rolling release distro.

Solus is the most optimized and fastest Linux distro.

No it doesn't.

Did nothing pop up when you clicked where to install? How did you put it on the Universal Serial Bus device? That's pretty weird since install Solus has been a breeze on every machine I've installed it on. All the machines I've installed it on used SSD's.

No, and I don't have a dad.

I see things on Ubuntu and Arch and Gentoo all the time, so there should also be things on Solus.

Maybe it's from Windows 10 and the drive is in that hibernation mode or something.

Thanks, I'll watch them after my Database Management class.

Yes. Also Budgie 11 will be using it's own WM using QtComposite and QtWayland, and will have its own blur effects.

I'd just like to interject for a moment. What you're referring to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called "Linux", and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called "Linux" distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux.

Legitimate question.

How do I disable my touch screen in Solus? Issue is I got this laptop for free because some dicknugger spilled wine in it, everything works except the touch screen gets phantom touches.

Delusional. If there's threads for those there can be threads for Solus. It's not breaking rules because it's technology.

Solus is actually not that bad.

It should replace poobuntu as babbies first distro

>> No.59639016

It has too few software. It would eventually force people to switch to an Ubuntu based distro.

>> No.59639103

Every review I see about Solus is only talking about "user friendliness" and how different it is, and then it basically shows off the default desktop which is completely interchangeable with others and nothing special. What's so great about Solus, what's so different?

No one mentions its package manager or in which way it is better than apt or pacman etc. All I see is Windows normies talking about it because it doesn't look like horseshit -- people more experienced with Linux don't really care about that though, because most know it's a simple configuration file or package installation away from looking exactly like you want to.

So why should I use Solus? What does it do better on a technical level? If the only reason to use Solus is the somewhat bare desktop shell it's not really convincing at all.

Feels pretty light to me, but I'm not running Solus itself.
Plasma was a bit heavier in many ways. The only major difference is the reliance on Gnome means doing esoteric config stuff for basic changes.
Raven could be more relevant, but it doesn't take up anything if you just keep it stashed, and I haven't had a reason to poke it hard enough yet.
