This is the blog’s welcome post that gives the reader a first idea of what this is all about.
In this entry I describe what using a computer meant for me when I started with it. It’s about DOS & Win3.x and Win9.x as well as computer gaming.
This post is about WinXP and later as well as how I got extremely sick of M$ and got back into Linux.
Here’s some thoughts about desktop Linux in general and what I think is most important for a light-weight desktop.
Small welcome post for pheakuser who decided to join in!
A few thoughts about resource and energy-saving systems as well as the first attempt to prepare a desktop testing environment (with Gentoo) can be found here.
As the title suggests, things did not work well. This one is about the Rolling Release model and Gentoo’s Portage.
This post covers the decision to abandon Gentoo for the test system and use Arch Linux instead.
In the first part of the desktop comparison Gnome 3 Shell, Cinnamon and Unity 3D were tested.
The second post of the series covers the Gnome 3 Classic, MATE, Xfce and LXDE DEs.
The third post is about KDE Plasma, Razor-Qt, Unity 2D and Trinity.
Part four of the series takes a look at Gnome 2, ROX, Enlightenment E17 and Sugar.
The last part of the desktop tests examines OpenCDE, CDE and EDE² plus there’s an honorable description of Étoilé and Mezzo.
This post offers several tables which allow a simple comparison between all 20 desktop solutions for your desktop.
The 15th post is about the Eerie blog that’s been around for 3 month now. It offers some statistics as well as a few thoughts on how the dynamics of the internet works today.
This post explains what toolkits are. It is meant for the reader who doesn’t even have a clue.
This post deals with something really extraordinary – a graphical distribution of an unexpected operating system thanks to ports of Nano-X and FLTK!
In this post I compare 7 GUI toolkits with each other to find out which is the lightest.
This posts examines the surprisingly simple basics of creating a live-cd with Arch Linux.
This post deals with the situation of the Linux desktop environments and introduces the “Desktop Demo DVD”.
This post is about version 0.1 of the DDD and includes a download link.
This post describes how users and a graphical login manager can be added to a live medium.
This blog entry deals with the question which graphical applications are essential for any distribution to have.
This is about the release of EDE packages for Arch and a hardware failure that I had.
