I just blew my mind. Tabs don't have to be 8 spaces wide when using cat etc.

Catching up on Elementary and I have the pleasure to see Snowden's actions mentioned in a fantastically positive and accurate light.

Refreshing to watch tv procedurals not sucking up to the govt.

If you spend a lot of time on the command line, you need a good prompt. I recommend ZSH for a host of reasons I won't go into right now.

But ZSH isn't easy to dive into - the default shells kind of suck. That's why I've spent a lot of time and care on mine and make it available on Github. My zshrc is very generic, straightforward and well-documented. It's a solid file to use as-is or to build upon.

I've recently updated it to show git stashes if there are any. It's really unbelievable how useful this stuff is.

libinput supports edge scrolling since version 0.7.0. Whoops, how does the post title go with this statement? Well, libinput supports edge scrolling, but only on some devices and chances are your touchpad won't be one of them...

Interesting things one can find when using Xwayland: context menu on context menu. That cannot happen on "normal X" as the pointer is grabbed and Qt handles everything internally, but with Xwayland there is no grab any more. I just find it awesome to uncover such findings.

contextception? I want it to become more and more adcamce the more menus you open so we end up to have pure assembly in the 100th menu :-)

I need to have a talk with whoever designed the scrollbars for this Qt theme.

Summary of an ex-Microsoft UX designer AMA.  Really good, honest answers to a lot of questions.

https://www.thurrott.com/mobile/windows-phone/3000/ex-microsoft-designer-explains-the-move-away-from-metro

I feel frustrated that much of the public doesn't understand or appreciate UX design.  I often hear people complaining about Google changes that are actually good changes: they're logical, they have strong HCI research justification, they test well -- but they're new, and new takes adjustment and is bad.  Then there are bad changes that get made, and people complain about those too, but they have no idea of how or why the bad changes they don't like are different from the good changes they don't like.  Instead, it's a simple binary question: do I like it immediately, or not?  If no, then the designers are idiots changing things just to change them, the product is getting worse every revision, and all the people involved should be fired.  (I've heard all of these -- and had a petition started for one of them -- before.)

Whereas, if you actually look hard at these questions, you realize that good design is difficult, and it's full of tradeoffs, so it's impossible to do everything for everyone.  I think the answers here do a good job of capturing some of that, while still acknowledging that some choices really are objectively worse.
An ex-Microsoft design lead who actually worked on Windows Phone has gone public and agreed with my assessment of the platform. It had to change.

I like the design of Windows 8 more than Win7 (though both looks quite good).
But Win8 nags me in a few points: - Less configurability. I mean, less obvious configurability, and a cleaner interface – ok. But removing options with no sense at all (like AdHoc network). Also it is getting on my nerves that you need to search the options as some options are only available in Metro, some only in pre-Metro. This is dumb.
But some stuff I really do like on the other hand.

Given all its references to current/recent political events, I wonder how well House of Cards will age as a series.
