Tiling window managers can boost productivity  View Printable Version 
Sunday, January 30 2011 @ 11:48 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEYou probably already know that a tiling window manager is one of the alternatives often provided by distributions alongside the standard Gnome or KDE desktops.

Instead of floating windows, with their ability to move anywhere, and stacked applications that overlap one another, a tiling window manager locks applications to the display, splitting as necessary to run applications side by side. When you run enough applications together, your desktop can start to look like a tiled bathroom, which is presumably why they're called tiling window managers.

9 reasons why you should switch to KDE 4.5  View Printable Version 
Wednesday, January 12 2011 @ 06:10 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEThere are two kinds of Linux users in the world – those who use Gnome and those who dislike KDE.

You can't blame them – to call KDE releases so far a disaster would be something of an understatement – but the tide has now turned.

Over 16,000 bug fixes and 1,700 new features later, the KDE developer unveiled KDE 4.5. The release has started popping up in many Linux distros, and it looks and feels stunning.

Here are nine reasons why it's time to log off Gnome and switch to KDE.

I’m sold on KDE (thoughts from a Gnome fan)  View Printable Version 
Friday, January 07 2011 @ 12:33 pm CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEI’ve always loved to tinker with things. The Teddy Ruxpin doll I had when I was younger, the first home PC my parents bought for me and my brother, and eventually Linux (thanks to my awesome brother, Eric, who got my video drivers working back when I didn’t have a clue what was going on). Over the years in Linux Desktop land I’ve always seemed to gravitate towards the Gnome desktop environment. It was simple, functional, fast and well thought out. Over time, my lust for customizing every aspect of the desktop to fit my liking went into hibernation as I started to work on projects and divert my attention elsewhere.

Activity-oriented vs Application-oriented workspaces  View Printable Version 
Sunday, December 26 2010 @ 11:36 am CST
Contributed by: Linegod

KDEI don’t normally comment on other people’s software… but… a little while ago, opensuse was wondering whether KDE apps would work with these Gnome Shell requirements. Last time I checked, their “Activities” sounded like virtual desktops, but now they’ve returned to an application-based shell. This in sharp contrast to Plasma Desktop’s increasingly Activity-oriented workspace.

So what does that mean? Well, in gnome-shell, windows are organized by application – by the binary that spawns them. All your firefox windows are grouped together, all your okular windows grouped together, etc. You can still group windows on virtual desktops, but alt-tab is application-based, so as soon as you’ve got more windows than screen space you may as well have everything on one desktop.
