Anyone else going to miss Ubuntu's Unity? For me it was the first desktop environment on Linux that was felt professional and smooth out of the box like Windows'. It's user interface is admittedly weird.

amazon slash and or plus debian

Me too senpai. The GNOME desktop is just awful. At least copycats of Unity are being developed for MATE and KDE.

>> No.64556095

Unity was OK and nowhere near as bad as haters made it out to be, but I liked Gnome2 and I like MATE.

I don't really care what DE I use as long as I can get what I need done.

Well, so which flavor of Ubuntu is the best right now? Exept KDE, because its ugly and heavy.

>> No.64557006

Ubuntu Minimal

>> No.64557434

Xubuntu. KDE isn't heavier than GNOME at least.

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.

I'm terribly sorry for interjecting another moment, but what I just told you is GNU/Linux is, in fact, just Linux, or as I've just now taken to calling it, Just Linux. Linux apparently does happen to be a whole operating system unto itself and comprises a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Most computer users who run the entire Linux operating system every day already realize it. Through a peculiar turn of events, I was misled into calling the system "GNU/Linux", and until now, I was unaware that it is basically the Linux system, developed by the Linux project.

There really isn't a GNU/Linux, and I really wasn't using it; it is an extraneous misrepresentation of the system that's being used. Linux is the operating system: the entire system made useful by its included corelibs, shell utilities, and other vital system components. The kernel is already an integral part of the Linux operating system, never confined useless by itself; it functions coherently within the context of the complete Linux operating system. Linux is never used in combination with GNU accessories: the whole system is basically Linux without any GNU added, or Just Linux. All the so-called "GNU/Linux" distributions are really distributions of Linux.

>> No.64558831

Not really.
I found gnome3 to be more usable.

>> No.64558867

You can use KDE and customize it to look like Unity. There's a tutorial on (((YouTube))). Plus, Qt is far superior to GTK.
