My path to achieve the greatest Linux desktop ever or… random IT stuff

New look again ~

My current Arch/ Openbox combo ^^

I change my mind all the time, so my desktop never stays the same for long xD

This time, I added a second conky with the time in large so it’s one of the first things I see, and a calendar which is really useful (I’m working on putting Google Calendar there though, so I know my appointments as well).

My theme is now Radiance, since I wanted to see my laptop “light up”, and that’s about it. ^^


Linux Mint ~ Light and Easy

Linux Mint 11 on my desktop at home

Yeah I know, I’ve got like a hundred Linux distros in each of my computers, but what can I do, I’m just looking for the right one…

Anyways, I’m here to talk a bit about Linux Mint – while I haven’t had the chance to really try it out yet, I can say it’s pretty good really. Feels lighter than Ubuntu while still with everything configured (well it IS based on Ubuntu afterall).

It’s pretty good actually, don’t remember why I never brought it up here… :s

Other than being awesome, it’s got something which I really like and that I haven’t seen on any other distro – instead of a forum for people to ask stuff, it’s got an irc client in which the default room is linux mint’s so that anyone can ask something and have an answer shortly after :)

I remember saying that Kubuntu would probably be the best choice for newcomers, but for those who don’t have 2GB Ram, Linux Mint is a pretty good option – the bar is at the bottom as well, I just moved it up on my Desktop to be more… Linux-like :’)

Well, I’ll write more once I’ve used Linux Mint after a few days/ weeks ^^
