>yfw Linux looked this shitty as recently as 2013
Yea... I am sure this is the best we had to offer in 2013.
Even kde 4 looked better at that time.
Here is a video of normies reacting to it in 2009
>not the logical YY-MM-DD
>gnome 2.0 released in 2002
>MATE, a fork of it is still in active development 14 years later.
>mfw one desktop environment to rule them all
yfw when there's Windows desktops like this this very moment
YYYY-MM-DD is the international standard (ISO 8601) for date and time related data exchange.
It has very little to do with USA and it's obese inhabitants, since amerifaggots use MM-DD-YYYY
>inserting unnecessary prepositions into your speech
Are you guys characters in a Charles Dickens novel? Someone asks you the date and you answer it's the 21st of January?
>literally two extra letters
>Hey anon, do you know what day it is?
>Why, it's the 21st of January, m'lady! *tips fedora*
How exactly? Nobody communicates dates as "the 21st of January" in the English language outside of period dramas.
The proper way of formatting a date in text is YYYY-MM-DD, it's unambiguous and ascends in order. Month Day Year, however, is better for verbal communication.
The Europoor standard isn't good for either.
No if someone ask me the date, I would say it's the 21st.
Assuming people I talk to haven't recently woken from a coma, they would know the month we are in, as well as the year.
If I have to write something to myself, I rather use my own notation which is year,week,day of week.
Today would be 16034.
It is easier for me as the day of the week is more important when making an arrangement than how far into january we are.
stardates have been changed so much, I don't think they actually mean anything.
It was my inspiration though, having a small number that is easy to understand as a complete date is nice.
When I started using the notation I was payed biweekly so any odd thursday would be a payday and finding a time to hang our with friends would always be on a weekend, so that made more sense for me.
I used to have it displayed on my built in clock but couldn't find the setting to do this when I updated to plasma 5...
LOL literally retard
Here, windows in 2016
I have to use this format in the company I work. When I get invited to a meeting it pops up in my calendar as "... KW4 Thursday 2016 16:45"
Where KW stands for the calendar week 4.
I hate it though, why not just give me the exact date. But whatever I got used to it.
in German, it's more natural the other way around, so the US notation makes doubly no sense for us. and it isn't more letters either.
>eurozone falling apart
KW was fucking confusing to me at first as well, but everybody uses it and it actually is better information than some random date in a month in a system where not all months are the same length and days in months have no meaning for whether you are at the office or not.
>Implying Linux themes will ever be as advanced as windows from back in 2007
>that fucking dragon
>that window design
Having the NSA look at all my files doesn't sound so bad now.
>January 13, 2008
>recently as 2013
>look it is this thread again
Every fucking time you post some old desktop and claim it is recent.
Large variety of tops in 2008, will post one more after this
Fuck off winnigger.
Linux can look like this if you rice it.
Last I'll post, but th3 the variety should show OP that desktops are all different and personal preference!
>clean, logical layout
>sane color scheme
Are you one of those graphics design fucktards that's trying to make everything look like Windows 10?
EAT SHIT AND DIE.
it's fucking ugly m8
i really don't care what your opinions are on information, cleanliness, colour, or whatever else. it looks like it was thrown together in java. it's absolutely one of the least aesthetic environments ever designed. it's like someone heard some dude describe mac os 6 while he was at a coffee bar and decided to recreate it in flash. it's fucking fugly.
the only good liking clean distro is the previous release of debian, i wanna say its 7 and kail linux 1.0.9 and i rather leave my sytem as default, i like the ideia of crazy oses, but i enjoy a simple to use environment not gpu heavy
Why is it that whenever I see a riced Linux desktop, someone always has 3 or 4 panels open:
1) A terminal session compiling or installing software.
3) Basic test code
4) (optional) an IRC client.
Like do people who rice their Linux desktops ever do actual work?
