If you really want to know, I think it's too much.
Reminds me of things more significant to the mid to late noughties when bloating your desktop was new and cool.

Update notes:
changed dem sides

Questions:
How the fuck do mpd/ncmpcpp work?
I cant get either to launch! ncmpcpp just shows up w/ no ui
and a shit ton of cpu.
I've looked it up and tried dicking around w/ various config to no luck.

I like your desktops! I just installed Manjaro with GNOME on my desktop today, so didn't take long for mine to get like that. My other scrots are on fedora with dwm, pic related

Then it's not nice, lol.

>>45666010

>>45666906
Blame gnome devs. I riced the borders, but it was a temporary fix by just patching the default theme files. Then the changes were nuked a little later when I did an update.

Guys, I'm making my first build tomorrow and I get a free operating system from my school. Should I get Win7 or Win8.1? I'm torn between the two because I like win7 compatibility but I also am assuming 8.1 will upgrade straight to win10 in the future.
>>
>>45667105
Did you view it full size?
>>45667110
thanks, that was very informative
>>
>>45667132
Install Gentoo.
>>
>>45667132
Win 7, Win 10/10 can wait.
>>45667136
you dipshit, I did.
>>
>>45667132
this >>45667137
also, ATI has no drivers
>>
>>45667132
get 8.1.
>>
>>45667161
Being serious, what could be improved?
>>
>>45667161
>>45667168
Well shit.

I can get Win7 Ultimate for free and Win 8.1 Pro. I know the additional features are arbitrary but maybe that narrows it down? lel
>>
>>45667132
get 8.1 ...very few tweaks needed to look/act like windows 7 if you want that otherwise you can still get use to gaymenu
>>
>>45667185
8.1 is going to run everything better and will have better support going into the future

i don't like it either but
>>45667192
is right if you want to get it looking like win 7
>>
>>45667192
I've heard they tried to allow more of the desktop look than that tablet shit with the update, but isn't there still no windows orb, and the windows key opens some big UI menu shit instead of the side-menu?
>>
>>45667180
try lowering the hinting.

>>45667217
I would try any Windows system after SP1

I use a program called startisback...it removes menu and you can remove charms and shits...looks like this
>>
>>45667421
another view
>>
>>45667435
Seems kinda pointless. You can have the few programs on the left on the taskbar and right clicking the start button in 8.1 brings up all the functions that the traditional start menu has.
>>
>>45666481
Try using good freedom respecting fonts like Open Sans or good freedom stomping fonts like Segoe UI
>>
>>45667407
OS X has the best rendering
>>
>>45667551
go back to irc

>>45667551
A monitor with DPI so high you don't need aa at all for readable text is best.

Font AA is just different flavors of the same shit.r
>>
>>45667421
So would you say the performance boost is worth it? And there would be no compatability or driver issues with games and whatnot? Any benefits of the UI?

performance, hard to say since i just installed it..but it does boot faster. no problems with games, it's windows, so you still use all their stuff for graphics and what not, also win8 has been out for a while now. benefits from ui...slicker imo. square looks nice.

There's some serious anachronism going on with the Times New Roman style font with everything else. Tip: change that shit, yung nigga.
