My misery with gnome3

Posted 12-17-2011 at 10:24 AM by MystikMitch

I have tried to love this thing called gnome3. I liked gnome "2" on whatever distro it was running on. Gnome 3 feels like it does not allow me to do almost anything. This thing has control over me not me over it. I can't even hibernate out of the box and need to look for an extension silly just for such a function. Suspend turns my monitor off, drives become quiet, and lights continue to blink. Imagine if cars came without a steering wheel and you would need an extension for that. Hibernate...

Moving on

Ubuntu left me and my old computer behind when they went to Unity. There is no driver for my computer, and it's too bloody difficult to install Gnome or anything else. Also, Karmic worked well on my old iron, Lucid less so... although some derivatives such as Puppy and Mint, based on Lucid, work fine.

Well, I finally upgraded my iron, but there wasn't money for a "real" computer. I now have an ASUS Eee PC 1215P, 1.5 GHz dual-core Atom. It came loaded with Win 7 HP... 32-bit,...

So, yes, I was a believer in God and used to think of him as a protector of all. I, as a Hindu, have pictures of our deities at home. I used to touch the deity's feet before leaving home asking him to take care of me and my family members on travel, provide us the intelligence to tackle the life etc.

Still kicking

Just a quick update...I'm still alive. I've been super busy with moving and getting settled in with the new job and city and new schools and all that jazz. It's been hectic. Rackspace is soooo worth the "life upheaval". (Google "rackspace castle" to get an idea of where I work. I love this place haha.)

I'll post more techie stuff when I get some time...
