This is going to be awesome. Terminix is already a great terminal emulator, and it's only getting better.

Another nice review!
If I had to pick one operating system of the year, I would be picking Ubuntu MATE 16.04, if Solus hadn’t come along and stolen the title. If it was a contest (and let’s admit it; it is.) this would be nothing short of a gripping and dramatic victory for Solus’ lead developer Ikey Doherty+ Read More

Solus isn't just about Budgie Desktop. It's the core OS that's the main focus. So...

Coming soon to a Solus repo near you...
 
Have you found your Sol-MATE yet?

Just noticed in the "About this community" bit it says "We are totally distro specific... Shouldn't that be "agnostic"?

Just curious.

Had some time, thought I'd play around with running a TWM under a DE. Chose MATE and i3-gaps, and I've got to say, not too shabby. Works pretty well. Won't replace my AwesomeWM setup, but still fun to experiment with.

I admit math isn't my strong point, but how does 1000 people equal "half of Americans" ? And where do the people surveyed live, Washington D.C.?
Reminds me of the T.V. show 'Family Feud', "We asked 1000 people what the term 'sheeple' means, and the survey says...! "
Apple may not have the public's support in its legal fight with the FBI, according to a recently published Pew report. In a survey that reached 1,000 respondents by phone over the weekend, Pew...

Solus/Budgie looking good with Adapta-Nokto theme and Vivacious-Colors icons. Real easy on the old eyes.

I think it would be a great idea too +AJ Reissig. I know there's plenty of tmux videos out there, but most are of the "look at the cool stuff I can do" variety. Something along the lines of "this is how you do that with tmux", some basic configuration and real-world uses would really be helpful to new users.

i3-wm on Solus. It's not the latest builds that Josh is working on, and it has some mods I've done. Blazing fast! The Solus team is doing an awesome job.

+Rob Boudreau Ah. I just found https://i3wm.org/i3status/manpage.html and apparently it has some color customizations.

Totally not Solus related, just curious. How's Portland treating you +Ikey Doherty? Hopefully it won't be all work, you'll get a chance to get out and see some sights.

Didn't know you'd been there before Ikey. Well if you have the time and want to get out of the city for a while (and don't mind driving on the wrong side of the road) take a trip on I-84 along the Columbia towards Hood River, it's a very pretty drive. Or you can take U.S. 26 west out to Cannon Beach and soak your feet in the Pacific. Portland's a nice city, and it's surrounded by natural beauty. Enjoy!

Been playing a bit with themes in Awesome, kind of happy with this "Paper" based one. GTK Paper theme with Awesome made to match. Only glitch is the damn Dropbox icon...

Vivaldi browser, Termite terminals with the usual suspects. ;-)

lololol  yes I hear you  :)  I've never understood the titlebar thing.  It's nice to have something like xtitle in the panel though.  Not sure why 'cause I always know where I am - but still   :)

If you downloaded Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon edition on Feb 20 (today), you'll want to read this.

Appreciate the re-share +Christopher Adam Lessley. I don't use Mint at all, but have a ton of respect for them. I think the Mint team did a stand-up job in finding it so fast, fixing it, and letting users know what to do. Kudos to Clem and the Mint team.
