Don't know what it is, but I've always thought everything always looked better, cleaner, crisper in Linux, with no graphics tweaking needed. Exactly why I've always kept a computer or 2 around here running some variant of it.

I haven't really toyed with Unity for about a year. It's grown on me. I like it. Think I'll keep it for a bit and see how she feels after some time with normal use...

OS: Ubuntu 12.10 (Unity)

Theme: Faience

Icons: Faience Azur

Font: Liberation Sans

Wallpaper:

Nice desktop. (Y)

One question though: From what I understand LibreOffice won't run on Ubuntu Gnome Remix. What are the alternatives?

Fedora 17 x64 in Virtualbox. I'm updating my secondary machine this weekend so I'll probably install it on there and see how it goes. :)

I have had a few issues with the gnome remix but no libreoffice issues at all. I have it installed, runs fine, its just not installed by default (the default install has abiword and gnumeric).

The only issues I had with UGR was this rather annoying bug:

https://bugs.launchp...ll/+bug/1046118

Which is fixed if you use the gnome 3 ppa, but using the gnome 3 ppa gave me this rather annoying bug: https://bugs.launchp...ro/+bug/1072151 (also a similar issue with rhythmbox where it says you need additional codecs in the cd ripping settings even though all the appropriate gstreamer 0.10 and gstreamer 1.0 plugins are installed). Which I fixed by getting rid of rhytmbox and brasero (using sound juicer and xfburn instead for cd's).

I also got rid of the gnome packagekit stuff and installed the regular ubuntu update manager and software center, because gnome-packagekit just sucks xD

That's good news. Kinda got the impression from the Ubuntu Gnome Remix webpage it wouldn't run at all. Is there a reason why they haven't bundled it by default?

They wanted to make it as gnomey as possible so it only includes gnome apps in the default install (abiword and gnumeric are the gnome office apps).

How do those stack up against LibreOffice?

They don't. Libre is the best way to go.

Thanks mate :)

It's Gnome 2x with my custom MacOS theme. Conky for the system stats, weather, Calendar etc, CoverGloobus for the Music cover you see on the screen, Avant Window Navigator (AWN) for the panel on the left with text icons I threw together and the dock at the bottom is Cairo Dock with OpenGL hardware acceleration. The file manager is Nautilus Elementary, patched to support Finder style toolbuttons :)

Ooh, could I have the theme? I would really like to make Linux look like OS X!!!

Just the initial theme took some time when I first made it, but I use it as a template so any subsequent mods take as little as 5 minutes to create in Photoshop ;)

The scripts, the text icons, all easy, done within minutes.

Does Photoshop run in Linux!? If not, how do you transition the content back and forth between platforms? (i.e. do you have a single shared folder used between a VM or something?)

Wine, mate. ;)

So the old -- Mount Windows partition... then run? Personally I have all my cross platform wine programs to save the files to my Dropbox. That way they are available in both Windows and Linux

I run Photoshop via Wine, although I also work on some graphics while in Windows, and accessing NTFS drives is not a problem in Linux.

      Canalys: Global PC market saw 25% YoY growth in 4Q20
      by Paul Hill



      The analyst firm Canalys has reported that the global PC market saw 25% year-over-year growth in the fourth quarter of 2020. The firm classifies the PC market as desktops, notebooks (including Chromebooks) and workstations but excludes tablets which are sometimes used by some in place of a full-blown PC. Total PC shipments in 2020 grew by 11% reaching 297 million units.

      The full-year growth in the PC market is the highest that’s been seen since 2020 and the number of units shipped is the highest seen since 2014. The growth in 2020 was driven by laptops and mobile workstations; they saw a growth rate of 44% compared to 2019. Desktops, on the other hand, were less successful with shipments falling 20% compared to 2019; there were 61.9 million shipments in this segment of the market in 2020.

      In the fourth quarter, the biggest PC vendor was Lenovo which shipped 23.1 million units, in second place was HP which shipped 19.1 million units. Dell came in third place shipping more than 15 million units for the first time ever, Apple was in fourth place shipping 7.1 million units and Acer came fifth with 6.1 million units shipped. Other companies shipped a combined 18.9 million units in the fourth quarter.

      According to Canalys Research Director Rushabh Doshi, PCs have been at the centre of the digital transformation that the world has gone through in the past year due to the coronavirus pandemic. Doshi said that going forward it’s going to be “extremely difficult” to write off PCs and that it’s likely that they’re here to stay.
