Hmm...Apparently Mozilla no longer builds Firefox for 'older' (pre-Yosemite) versions of OS X. I wonder if there is a technical reason that FF can't compile and run, and if a project will pop up like TenFourFox or Classilla (Rebuild of Firefox for OS X 10.4 - 10.5 and for Mac OS (classic) 8.x/9.x, respectively) on PPC (I am sure there is someone who will complain that System 6 on M68K doesn't work, but how many of them even have Ethernet?). I know the FF codebase is a nightmare to deal with, but there are an awful lot of older Macs out there, especially ones running 10.6 (last version to support PPC applications on Intel Platform). Also note, Firefox ESR will still support 10.6-10.8 for another year. #Apple #OSX #Mozilla #Firefox

Theme question - When I try to apply certain (older) GTK 3 themes to newer GNOME (3.18 in Fedora 23) the background blanks out as seen in the first screenshot. Does anyone know what I need to update to fix that? Thank you.

+Thorfinn Hrolfsson It's not a bug. There was a change in GNOME that the themes had to be updated as a result of (I remember this, but it happened a long time ago. The theme last worked for me in Fedora 19 I think). What I am asking is if anyone knows what the change was/how to modernize the theme to fix it.

In honor of the Windows 10 'free' update period ending, I am going to see how long I can stick with Linux on my home desktop (it's on a separate SSD, so no formatting or loss of anything required). For the next week, let us see how much you really need to be anchored to a particular OS for, or if the applications/tasks can be done across the board. (Setup: Core i5 3570K/16GB DDR3 RAM/Geforce GTX 770/90GB SSD (Linux), 2x1TB HDD (Data). Going with the previously installed Fedora 23.) Let the games begin. #Fedora   #Linux   #LinuxGaming   #yearofthelinuxdesktop

Look what I found going through going through some old stuff (I was actually looking for a Windows 2000 disk).

Not impressed. That is not what users expect out of a "Pro" laptop. It is sad that the last professonal MacBook Pro was released in 2012. #Apple   #macbookpro   #macbookFAIL

(Probably simple) question - I installed a slightly older theme (nimbus) into a newer version of GNOME (running 3.18). When I select the theme while icons are on desktop, the desktop background changes to white. Does anyone know what I have to fix in the theme to take care of this?

Okay, so am I doing a dive back into Fedora on my home desktop. I had at one point installed Fedora 23 on my second SSD (and GRUB is on that SSD as well, all legacy boot.

I enjoyed both Portal games via Steam on Fedora.  I enjoyed them again when they were made Linux native!

I think the only thing I've ever seen needing fall-back to Windows was an Apple device update, and even that's been fixed, AFAIA.

Hey - the Ninja Cat wallpaper is pretty neat. And so is the Ninja Cat GIF they sent out too. And something about my profile in the feedback hub getting a ninja cat badge added to it. Guess I get something for sending feedback after all! #windows10   #windowsinsiderprogram   #Microsoft  
 
I hope y'all get yo free copy of Windows 10! Microsoft just sent me an email with Windows 10 Anniversary Update Ninja Cat wallies for being a Windows Insider.
