COVID-19 in India - News and Updates

The comment section shall be used for news aggregation and discussion.

you’re correct on all other points - except gnome vs windows. it is possible to create hotkeys in windows, at least, I can move the taskbar to either side to save some vertical pixels. gnome extensions are version-specific.

gnome is so buried in their “philosophy” that “desktop customization” to one’s liking is strictly a no-no. and they completely disregard small screen users like me: no global menu, can not (i think) hide or move the top bar without extensions, and hiding application window like KWin can is unthinkable.

I like the power of KDE, I have a separate user account in my laptop that I use to log in to plasma and tinker with KDE, but what I don’t like about KDE is that I need to spend a lot of time to make it look good, and there are tons of options on every mouse click. KDE combines usage mode and customize mode together. that ends up making user experience cluttered.

but budgie appears to provide a stable DE with all good defaults with some customizability. for example, I am saving some pixels: https://i.imgur.com/bgfWmmD.png

oops! that’s discouraging. unix and fraud should not exist together!

elementary is a step in the right direction, and I liked elementary OS. but since it is based on Ubuntu LTS, packages tend to be outdated. their DE, named Pantheon, is heavily tied to the distro, and I think pantheon in AUR is not so usable.

i would like to mod /c/india. would you please sign me up?

I am interested in moderating c/india as well. how do I sign up?

Really looking forward to Serpent OS and probably a good DE

I admire Linux kernel, but not satisfied with most DE’s. Currently, I am settled with Budgie on Manjaro. KDE is powerful, but has unsuitable defaults and should have been named Tinker Desktop Environment. OOTH, I feel Windows is more open and customizable than Gnome is. …
