My Unity Desktop

Posted 10-14-2015 at 12:54 PM by reykev

I think I like my Unity desktop environment the best, of what I have tried so far.

I have various version of the GNOME desktop and like them.
I have KDE Plasma and like it.
I have XFCE and like it too.

My Blog? :)

I didn't know I had one 'till I got an email this morning telling me I did. Cool!

NEWS 151010: Build 150916 has been replaced by Build 151010, which is totally error-free and has some extra features.

COMPARISON with my previous Build from 150916
News in Build 151010: Most important is that Build 151010 can run and be installed in VirtualBox and VMware. Also that OpenGL ES hardware acceleration for Intel/AMD (radeon) and Nvidia (nouveau) chipsets is enabled. Ive also added the Twitter and Viber apps. Very useful apps (I think).

Skype and Viber apps in my KitKat Build 7 150721

I just want to share that I have “discovered” that Skype and Viber can be installed and used without problems in “my” Android x86 system KitKat Build 7 from 150721. These are pretty awesome apps, wouldn’t you agree?
