My path to achieve the greatest Linux desktop ever :)

Lost everything ;__;

My boyfriend’s desktop with Arch and Gnome 3 (it’s actually pretty but I hate Gnome 3 so..)

Bad news… well, maybe not for you, but for me definetely. My hard disk died… and I lost everything I’d done to my OS.. sure, I kept a small backup of college stuff.. But my Gimp stuff, it all disappeared ;___;

I’d started making a wallpaper for Ubuntu’s October release – for the contest – and it was so pretty… But I lost it x.x

I still can’t understand what happened, it’s not like I overclocked my Netbook or anything… And while I used it daily, it wasn’t intensive use really… So I can’t put my finger on what the hell happened… It’s still in warranty so I’ll make use of that, but my data… gone… forever… I seriously need to have backups of more stuff and keep it more updated…

However, despite all the drama in my heart, it can actually be considered a good thing – I was thinking of formatting my whole hard drive so I’d have a fresh clean installation and so that I’d dedicate my time to customizing Openbox once again – god I really miss it for some reason…

KDE is out of the question for me because, there’s no way I’m gonna update my RAM anytime soon, and without that, KDE is one slow DE.. XFCE was good too but I really fell in love with Openbox for some reason… I just need to get it all configured again x)

Btw, I was thinking if Arch was really the best choice for me – it’s customizable and updated however I’ve been thinking that there might be better distro choices for me. I need a simple, clean distro, easy to use and understand and, more importantly, lightweight because of my Netbook (Asus Eeepc 1005HA)… what do you recommend?


New look and weird classes ~

So my KDE now has a new darker look which I think looks nicer ^^

Also my desktop has a little detail that I really like – can you see Amarok’s wolf near the moon? It looks like it’s howling at it even though that wasn’t my objective when I put it there xD

On another thing my “normal” nursing classes are over – I now have two weeks with an optional class: Communication and Information Technologies in Nursing (hope I translated that right).

So basically what we’re supposed to learn is searching for Nursing stuff and making a website.

My boyfriend and his friends who are in Computing told me that, coming from my college, it had to be making a blog. I laughed at them, but hoping they were wrong inside…

When I started the class today, the professor told us that we wouldn’t be using any special software to make the website. And I was like “NO DREAMWEAVER, YAAAY! WE’RE GONNA BE MAKING THIS ON A NOTEPAD, HELL YEAH!!!”….. But such wasn’t the case x.x

We’re gonna be making a website in…
