Windows and OS X will never look this good.
It really doesn't. I agree that several years ago I would've given it more points for looks than the other OS' but nowadays OS X just looks kind of uninteresting and old.
You could even build a way better looking Windows theme with little effort.
Kubuntu is so far very very very okay. I have had small problems such as DVDs not playing right even after installing libs for them and even screen fetch fucking up a little bit.
The only thing they have going for them in Konqi.
Look guys I installed a KDE distro and riced it up. I'm just a freedom loving programmer. Look at my Anime wallpaper too! I even use terminal application based applications because I'm that cool! :D
The UI hasnt changed much in the last 10 years Ive used OSX. While Windows and Linux have taken more strides towards design and user friendliness OSX just kind of sat there. OSX did set the bar in minimalism way back when and I do recall people ricing their windows rigs to look more Appleish but no one really cares now. I dont really have any good suggestions but when youve become used to a certain design for too long it just gets old. Maybe a little bit of a shakeup would help. Trade the metallic borders and plasticy icons for something else.
Horribly memed, dear Sir. Instead of adding a piece of shit clock wizard to the default desktop you could change the "look and feel" and stop trolling
i hate this meme, this is what plasma 5 looks like with the default dark theme. It looks even better when you download some nice themes
Nothing comes close the the sexyness of plasma 5
Where is your Jobs now?
Damn this is pretty gorgeous. As someone who is not good at ricing, and their OS knowledge ends at adding rainmeter and changing their windows start button / theme, how tough is this to do?
Are there any relatively free programs to make simple apps for the ios and android on?
I have some very simple app ideas I want to create, kind of like games, have no coding knowledge.
I can't seem to find any app creating programs. Am I just retarded at googling?
See if you can install the LUbuntu "package". I haven't used Ubuntu in a while, but I remember being able to install the different UI "flavors" as a set of packages through apt-get
Linux is pretty smart when it comes to processing time. having a heavy UI will not bog down other process.
If it becomes a problem, you can set the niceness level of your UI higher
>waist cycles in the background
What do you think your computer is doing? 30% of your power goes to running the clock regardless. It is always cycling. The reason for a light ui is less overhead when you actually need those cycles.

Don't know why this triggers the /g/ user.
Mouse accel is a predictable, consistent behavior. It means I don't have to injure my wrists moving the mouse 2 feet to spam my quad monitors. It also means I can have fine grained control for text selection/graphics/programming/gayming.
Sure, it requires more dexterity and muscle memory, but it's superior in every way.
So again, you'd have to be a pleb to actually not want mouse accel.
Apple doesn't have to include flashy UI revamps in new OS releases to get people to upgrade, and what's there has been proven to work pretty well, and large chunks of it have been refined for over 30 years. That's not the sort of thing to haphazardly throw out the windows because some tiny subset of users have become bored.
>Mouse accel is a predictable, consistent behavior
maybe if you move your mouse at perfectly the same speed for every motion.
or if you're autistic enough to use like 400 dpi on a 4k monitor
I rock around ~500-700 dpi over quad 1920 monitors and with a nice short quick motion I can drag a window to the farthest screen.
>maybe if you move your mouse at perfectly the same speed for every motion.
Holy fuck why is it so hard to understand that mouse movement speed correlates to greater distance traveled?
