Enlightenment - Beauty at your fingertips

Forums Best Linux Distro for the Desktop in 2013, Linux secure boot, Linux disk partitioning If you want one short answer to this question (which Linux distribution is the best in 2014) - there's no such Linux, there isn't one best Linux distribution. There are widespread and popular distros, there are less popular and less widespread ones. If you are too lazy to read the rest of the article below just go download Fedora (choose KDE or XFCE desktops instead of Gnome during installation if you want something similar to Windows XP/7), Linux Mint or Kubuntu (a Ubuntu derivative with a classic Windows like interface). These are the top Linux'es for your consideration. Firstly, all Linux distros are fraught with the same problems which are described in detail on this page. Those problems are quite serious and even though there's a good chance you won't face any of them, there's a non-zero chance that you will struggle to make your Linux work, or something will break for you and you will spend countless hours trying to figure out why that thing isn't working any more.

Conky - Home Bodhi Guide to Enlightenment - Index This Bodhi Guide to Enlightenment is intended to be your resource for using Enlightenment (E17) and getting the most out of it. New Bodhi Linux users may also want to check out our brief introduction, the Quickstart Guide, which is available online and locally on your system, accessible via the Main Menu. One of the beauties of a Linux system is the plethora of choices for a Window Manager, and Bodhi Linux uses Enlightenment as its default. But what exactly is a Window Manager? According to Wikipedia, “A window manager is system software that controls the placement and appearance of windows within a windowing system in a graphical user interface … They work in conjunction with the underlying graphical system which provides required functionality such as support for graphics hardware, pointing devices, and a keyboard, and are often written and created using a widget toolkit." The first version of Enlightenment was released in 1997. We hope you find this guide useful.

Razor-qt Eyecandy for your GNOME-Desktop - GNOME 5 Linux Desktops of Choice The desktop on your Linux box used to stand for something very simple. If you were a KDE user, you valued control, power and the ability to customise. In rough terms, if you used Gnome you wanted the desktop to get out of the way so you could get on with using your computer. If you used anything else, such as Xfce, LXDE or TekWM, you were running an ancient machine that would struggle with either of the big two of KDE and Gnome. The change brought about by the release of KDE 4 changed all that. Brave as they were, these designs had much wrong with them, especially in the months following their release. This desktop reformation and counter reformation has brought us to today's situation, and there has never been a better time to survey what's out there and what makes each project. As they're easily the two biggest desktop projects, we've left out Gnome 3 and KDE 4, as well as Unity, but we've included Xfce to represent the more established desktops.
