A lot of it to me depends on whether the edge screen slider dock will work with Nova Launcher, and I' m doubting it. This is a question I have not been able to get answered.
While the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge’s curved side panels may seem like a pointless feature to some, it’s actually a super useful and versatile tool to have. It makes more sense on the Edge phones than a standard “flat” display, since it basically stays out of the way until you need it. The ability to customize this area is just the icing on the cake, and Samsung has included some really useful tweaks here.

#KDE   
Plasma, the desktop for the KDE project, has just received a massive update and is now at version 5.3 Beta. It's still under development, but users can already see the amount of work that has been done.

is not just because of eye candy and shiny stuff, it is actually really useful and ergonomic, the fact that you can split the default file manager (dolphin) is huge time saver, especially when it immediately asks if you want to copy o move files :) and konqueror is also nice, you can split it infinite times horizontal or vertical , focus/dim windows is another feature that help me to work faster, and this only the tip of the iceberg

EXACTLY how I would've voted it - #1 KDE, #2 Xfce. KDE just gives me the control I want, while Xfce is just intuitive and easy to use.

+Karl Gephart That's just what I've been running the past year - Xubuntu 14.04. I love that I can just set up the look of my panels directly. Add a wallpaper I like and I'm 90% done.
Love the flexibility of the panel clock - which I like largish and glance-able with just the information I want.
Love the subtle flexibility of the panel launcher.
And when I stumbled on the default setup of <alt>+mouse-wheel for zoom I was sold. That is just brilliant. Use it all the time.
I know KDE has had a lot of changes in the past year though. So probably at some point I'll throw that on for a bit to check out.

#Chromebook I had been wanting to find time to learn how to make an app from a bookmark to pin on my shelf for some time now. This old article works beautifully!
The Chromebook's app launcher--basically its Start menu--doesn't support custom shortcuts to your favorite websites but you can still do it.

I love how my #Otterbox for LG has to be cleaned inside of dirt about every month and kind of looks crappy on my G3, yet my my wife's fits like a glove on her iPhone 6 and never has to be cleaned! Guess I know where the money is, huh?! Or maybe it's the specs? Any other Android users not too thrilled with Otterbox?

Wow! This gives a new meaning to the word "keyboard." I would not have believed it. Short of entering logins, this Google app works great for me with a stylus. You can quickly switch to your regular keyboard when needed (i.e., for passwords).

It takes guts to ask a stupid question, so I'm going to ask one anyway. Can I safely upgrade my PC to Linux 4 as per the article below?

I have Linux Mint 17.1 LTS (x64 KDE) with Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS. Specifically, I have Linux version 3.13.0-37-generic (buildd@kapok)(gcc version 4.8.2 (Ubuntu 4.8.2-19ubuntu1).
Linux Kernel 4.0 codenamed 'Hurr Durr I'm a sheep' (it's not a joke :) has been announced by Linus Torvalds on the mailing list. 4.0 is not with some big changes but some small hardware support, driver improvements and bug fixes. There are more changes be

I'm thinking you won't see 4.0 as a non-manual option until LM18 and 15.10 (16.04 if you're sticking to LTS).
My biggest concern would be nvidia driver support at this point, but any driver you use that is not part of the kernel has a chance of not being compatible yet.

Almost 2 years ago, after Windows 8, I finally decided it was time to jump off the shaky WIndows train to something better for my needs - Linux. About 2 months ago, I finally completed the transition. Never looked back, never been happier! Some good comments on this article! Thanks, +Martin Brinkmann!

Story
Tagline
All around tech fanatic!
Introduction
In the 80’s, I grew up with computers like my Timex Sinclair and TRS-80. I taught myself Basic and DOS. In the 90’s, I logged into Prodigy and other BBS’s and met my wife, Ashley in ’93! In the late 90’s, I worked at AOL as an assistant trainer and taught myself HTML. Now, in my spare time, I enjoy playing Chess, reading computer and RV/travel magazines, listening to Club/Hip-Hop Music, and watching Star Trek. I would like to get more into the hardware side of computers—replacing peripherals and building new computers from scratch—just tinkering around!
