Some screenshots I've taken while playing +EVE Online. Absolutely loving the game.

So I watched the "Ubuntu phone promo video". Am I the only one that is super annoyed by the fact that it says "NearBy" freaking everywhere instead of "Nearby".

Seriously people, why is that B capitalized? The word is "Nearby", not "NearBy", not "NeArby", nor "NeArBy".

Sigh.

"Frameworks 5 and Plasma have been recognised as maturing usable products"

LOL wut. Bullshit.

"which means it’s time to take a serious look at what to expect when you turn it on for the first time"

You mean turning my computer on and not expecting the compositor to throw a hissy fit, sometimes not rendering an entire display until I randomly click something in it or move a window from a different screen over and force everything to be repainted.

"This is mostly anecdotal and other factors are in play, but no matter how you slice it Plasma 5 uses less RAM, somewhere between 20-40% less RAM is consumed on a freshly booted machine"

And yet uses one my CPU cores 100% of the time, 100% of the use, and causing my fan to always be on at a low level. But does Gnome and KDE do that? Nope.

"Throughout the entire experience consistent colours and appeal are pervasive, and the icons seem to just “match” everything thoughout the environment."

And some of the icons outright look futuristic.

"The new design is also highly animated"

As per the usual. Arguably more excessive than Gnome.

(Cashew) "There have been heavy debates on how to hide it, but for the interim it’s here to stay."

Still disappointed in that.

"This next-generation Krunner uses a much more sophisticated engine which apparently increases the speed further"

Can't argue with that. Unity and Gnome have nothing on the speed of KRunner.

"Generally it’s not an issue as the focus is clearly on getting to your favourite applications"

(The Standard Launcher) Aside from when I install something and then need to wait for the new software to be indexed, it is pretty decent.

(Long part about Activities) I don't personally use them, mainly because I don't have the time to suddenly switch from "oh lets work" to "oh lets play", let alone on the same machine (I have a laptop for coding, attached to the usual monitor, keyboard, and mouse that is shared with my desktop).

(Talk about the System Settings) Yep, pretty solid improvement there. No other comment.

(Muun) Can't find it on Fedora for some reason. Shrug.
 
KDE is one of the oldest open-source desktop projects which can be found today, and over the years it has established a rich history of highs and lows. During some points it has been the undisputed...

Syiro v1.2.0 Release Candidate 1 has now been released!

This release candidate lands improved live streaming support, support for third-party library integration and skipping of canPlayType() verification, a fairly large cleanup and overhaul of the Syiro Theming System, the deprecation of icons and going with a new Syiro font with scalable vector files instead.

Syiro 1.1.0 was released yesterday with bug fixes to the Syiro Audio and Video Player Components, generator code improvements and simplification, and introduction of new APIs. But the most important aspect of this release is our documentation has been extensively improved and will be continued to be updated over the course of the next week to ensure it is on-par with current functionality of Syiro.

You can download and start using our new release by going to https://github.com/StroblIndustries/Syiro/blob/master/stable.tar.gz

Unfilter 133 was unarguably the best Unfilter episode yet. I completely understood Chris' rage regarding the request for congressional approval (and therefore legitimacy by the U.S. Congress) to have yet another instance of *troops on the ground* to "fight" ISIS / ISIL. I'm fairly certainly we've all predicted and seen this from a mile way, dating back to the very first Unfilter episode that mentioned ISIS. A direct confrontation between U.S. ground forces and ISIL was simply inevitable.

Regarding Brian Williams: It really goes to show how absolutely screwed mainstream media is and absolutely justifies the existence of Unfilter.

We have now released 1.1.0 (Release Candidate 2) of Syiro. This is a development / experimental release that brings code refactoring and reduction as well as performance gains as a result of the inclusion of a new system into Syiro for handling the data of Components. There has also been the addition of adding custom HTML to List Items so the use cases of List Items is much greater than before.

So I just uninstalled all of Plasma 5, re-enabled GDM, re-installed some Gnome stuff I uninstalled (not exactly in that order) and now I'm happily back in Gnome.

It was nice to see how KDE has progressed, but the annoying compositor bugs and minor workflow things I just couldn't deal with.

That said, I don't see myself really bashing KDE in the future like I did in the past. It is a really solid desktop environment, it just isn't the one for me.

One last thing though: I'll miss you Dolphin <3

Oh and Breeze was a damn fine window decoration as well, once I switched the button sizing from the default insanely large to small.

The more I use Plasma 5.2 Beta, the more I regret using Plasma 5.2 Beta instead of just sticking with Gnome, using Pantheon, or even Unity.

Mainly these really annoying graphical glitches with window framing and compositing. Figured maybe changing OpenGL versions would help, but no, it doesn't. If anyone has any tips regarding making my Plasma 5.2 Beta experience better, particular with the compositing issues I'm having, I'd be eternally grateful.

Only 33 days of gameplay to complete. I better get to work on that.
It would take me 805 hours or 33 days, 13 hours, 55 minutes of continuous gameplay to beat my Steam library

"Watch the entirety of Star Trek (all TV shows and movies) 1 times" - Okay, that sounds way more appealing.
