goodbye kde – welcome xfce

March 30th, 2011

It looks I can not follow the new KDE 4 style, it’s just not what I expect from OS, there is still open question (open for me) where is the old good stable and working KDE known from KDE 3 ? Having to match problems configuring sensors, clock, those basic parts of an UI at least for me I got lately inspired by http://news.opensuse.org/2011/03/28/review-opensuse-11-4-and-the-much-improved-xfce-4-8/. And now here is my freshly configured XFCE, the only thing it missed was network manager, but I got it fast solved by adding few launchers, here is my desktop: screenshot xfce

What I’m happy about is it is extremely fast (search for kde slow or cpu bugs), but there is nice feature – my clock is my personalized clock


to set your own personalized clock read manual:

man 1 date

    You’d better change the “Banners” section over there in the sidebar. ;)

    I’m downloading xfce now. Been thinking about the switch for a while, especially with Ubuntu moving towards Unity (or whatever it is they’re doing).
