KDE has released Plasma 5: http://www.kde.org/announcements/plasma5.0/

KDE proudly announces the immediate availability of Plasma 5.0, providing a visually updated core desktop experience that is easy to use and familiar to the user. Plasma 5.0 introduces a new major version of KDE’s workspace offering. The new Breeze artwork concept introduces cleaner visuals and improved readability. Central work-flows have been streamlined, while well-known overarching interaction patterns are left intact. Plasma 5.0 improves support for high-DPI displays and ships a converged shell, able to switch between user experiences for different target devices. Changes under the hood include the migration to a new, fully hardware-accelerated graphics stack centered around an OpenGL(ES) scenegraph. Plasma is built using Qt 5 and Frameworks 5.

Why use ms office over free alternatives?

If you’re stuck with an MS Access integrated system, you’ll be stuck with that system until someone converts the whole thing to a different format. Had this issue at my work area, and after spending a week writing a python script that could pull exported database tables in XML and write it to SQL commands, that would later be dumped in an sqlite3 dB file, I realized just how horrible it was.

You fail to realize you’re basing your opinion off of Linux in the late nineties. What era do you live in?
  1. We’ve had GUI software management in most all distributions since like 2008, seriously, what are you talking about?
  2. AMD and Intel graphics chipsets both have native support in Ubuntu, if not all major Linux distros. Furthermore, Cannonical has obtained licensing for most AMD and Intel based graphics hardware and supports it EXACTLY THE SAME WAY WINDOWS DOES in Ubuntu 12.04 and above.
  3. Dell has been shipping machines with Ubuntu since like 2010. On top of that, there are companies like System76 that will sell you a machine with Ubuntu preinstalled for a very reasonable price.

I don’t know where the hell you’re getting your information, but before you open your mouth, you should probably know what you’re talking about.

P.S. Linux, Unix and Mac OS are three entirely different systems.

Linux Mint 17 User Opinion

smashing-yng-man:

I migrated my main laptop’s Linux distro from Ubuntu 14.04 to Mint 17, and haven’t even logged into Windows 7 in a week. Feels good, man.

And if you don’t like how Ubuntu looks, then you can try Elementary OS, Xubuntu, Kubuntu, Linux Mint, Lubuntu…all based on Ubuntu but with different looks, feels, benefits and uses. If you don’t like Ubuntu, you can try Fedora, or Debian or OpenSUSE or one of the other thousands of distros all completely free.

Seriously, I’ve been running Xubuntu 14.04 on an old Dell I rebuilt for almost a year now. Ubuntu can be put on almost any machine, and is compatible with all of my hardware. I go online with Google Chrome, I watch movies in VLC, I make music in Bitwig, I edit photos in GIMP, I listen to music in Spotify. I have less issues than when I was running Win 7 on the same machine. I used to have to re-write my operating system on a monthly basis for all the viruses and malware and problems I was having. Now, if something breaks, it’s usually my fault, or there’s a quick fix only a google search away. If not, someone will figure it out soon.

Windows is an outdated system built on outdated ideas, and the only reason it survives, and continues to rule the market is because everyone is terrified of change.

Too late, change is here. In the next decade or so you can say goodbye to your precious Windows…it will be an obsolete idea.

Thanks for giving it a second try ben-b-rock-n, the community thanks you.

I hope this post is VERY old, because literally none of the points in this post about Linux are the case anymore. The thing is, if you need Microsoft Office or Adobe or something like that, you’ll probably need Windows. Other than that, it’ll probably just work. I recently decided to install Ubuntu 14.04 on my desktop pc which has several other Linux systems installed, and all I had to do was press install, and I was good to go.

Beyond that, it’s really just a matter of developers releasing games for Linux, and there you have it. If you’re using the command line, you are either doing so by choice, or doing it wrong. There are almost never any requirements to do things in the command line, a lot of people simply prefer to do it this way because of the expressive way you can do things in a quick and simple manner.

You fail to realize how not user friendly Linux is to 99% of the population.

1) people will NOT tolerate using terminal to install packages
 (which I find my self being forced to do all the time)

2) GPU driver software tends to suck and has received very little progress in the passed 3 years.  I want my AMD drivers to handle my GPUs just like they do in windows but they dont.

3) It does not come pre installed so its not good enough for 99% of pc users. Period.  People dont know how to install windows.. you think they will go from a working windows to a Linux (something they have no idea how to use) and install it them selves successfully??? and then start using it without giving up features they have been using in Windows sense 1995???

So dear Linux fanboy. Linux is not even close to mainstream.  Ive tried them all.  Ubuntu, Mind, Debian, Ubuntu Gnome, etc.  Its all great but the second someone non tech savvy gets near it it will turn into a total shit show.  They want drive letters, not mount points.  They want installers (.exe .msi) and not .gz.tar bla bla bla that they have to extract and then go to the terminal and find that directory and then compile it and then download this and then execute that.  They wont deal with it.  Any linux fanboy or serious developer needs to get on their horse and make it user friendly.  Apple already did that with their Unix hack so why cant the all powerful linux gods?
