Early yesterday morning I took the plunge and upgraded to Gnome 2.6, amazingly everything went very smoothly and my desktop is looking even better than before! The only change which I took an instant disliking to was Nautilus’ new spatial file browsing mode which I very quickly turned off. Aside from that everything seems a lot quicker and browsing windows shares is now seamless and crash-free. Why anyone would want to use KDE (or other WM’s such as the ugly mess that is ironically called ‘Enlightenment‘) is beyond me but I guess thats what makes Linux such a great OS in that if you don’t like something you can change it.
Ever wondered what would happen if you got a load of Japanese school kids to fill in the words in an American-style comic strip as an exercise in learning English? No? I hadn’t either until I came across this site which I found fairly amusing, especially when it comes to their attempts at humor!
