Opera Presto had the best GUI ever. Ever.

Posted 02-21-2016 at 11:27 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

I can't speak anything about the web-rendering part, which seemed at very least okay, in pair with firefox and chrome, if not somewhat better, sometimes. Even there the GUI alone could give it an edge sometimes as it had a button where you could choose to display/download no image at all, only display already cached images, or operate normally. Other browsers may even have that function, but it's hidden deeper in a less customizable GUI.

And customization was so easy and powerfull....

debian lenny - STABLE bug.

Posted 07-21-2010 at 12:21 PM by Web31337 (In The Middle Of Nowhere [edK's blog])

I have just lost my backup data thanks to STABLE versions of stupid GUI "xfburn".

Im now wondering what's on that DVD disc, some space looks to be non-empty but mounted disc is empty. Quest for future. Luckily, the data wasn't that way important so that's why I didn't check it, in oppose to other discs I've written that day.

Yet another - to debian.
Few days ago I was trying to make a backup and write it on DVD. But failed to do so with:
1. nautilus (recently i used that, it was a simpliest way)
2. xfburn (i use xfce)
3. brasero.
All of them either hang or fall when I add too many files. Well, what the heck if I don't have any other choice? I need all of those files.
I was beginning to think about frontend to "genisoimage"... say, a GTK app, allowing to create an...

Victims of Their Own Success?

Posted 02-08-2010 at 07:32 PM by dixiedancer (A Simple Kid's Opinion)

I have a new saying...

I prefer to run applications rather than operating systems.
There are so many wonderful super-geeks who have worked very long and very hard to produce a desktop Linux that is simple enough for even a non-geeky kid like me to use. But not uncommonly, I hear them complaining that too many Linux users rely on the graphical interface and don't bother to learn the command line. It's kind of ironic, dontchya think? You wanted to make Linux easy enough for the non-geeky...
