Curious about what this means… Are they trying to port everything over or is it going to be a simpler email app under the thunderbird brand? Either way I think it’s a cool idea.


ok? but their laptops are entirely repairable and upgradable down to the CPU. The other 3 just repackage blank laptops with their name and bios on it and call it a day.




they do have that weird twitter/mastodon project that has been looking for a leader for years now


It might not be on the same level of “easy and quick” as some of the other suggestions here but chili is really simple once you get the hang of it and you can kinda just dump random things from around your kitchen in and make a large amount of food relatively quickly and without a ton of effort.


also you can easily add more protein with some deli meat, not super budget but its definitely easy


I don’t think it’s worth replacing KDE on a desktop but if you have a laptop you use for simpler tasks Gnome is perfect for that.



yep federation is working amazingly well. I can browse and interact with this post even though it’s on another lemmy instance without even noticing.


Unbelievably based as always


I use it but only for a close friend group and occasionally asking questions in bigger servers. It’s way too much for a group chat but thats what makes it fun to use as well. I wish there was an appealing libre alternative that was worth switching to beyond the foss aspect but there really isn’t at the moment. Hopefully matrix works out because it’s looking pretty good so far.



seems likely he’s making stuff up and playing the system to his advantage

Tbf that’s how the system works as far as I’m aware. You start off going for as much as you possibly can and the defense will try and bring it down and make a deal.

Since he’s a pig, inherently a bad person, seems likely he’s making stuff up

feels like a really weird train of thought


okay you’re right about the root topic.

Mainly the idea is that gnome is nice because it has generally pretty solid defaults and doesn’t expect you to do anything drastic to get the most out of it (except dark mode which is coming in a few weeks in gnome 42). This helps productivity out of the box and makes it more approachable. KDE is also good, I’m running it right now and it’s defaults are also good, but it took me a long time to get anywhere near to getting the most out of it.

For some people that’s good, they want to be immersed into their desktop and know and control every part they use. Other people prefer a simple setup to use as a medium to get work done and put that effort into other things like their work or games or anything else. It’s really up to the type of user.


None of the points in the comment you’re replying to said less options = good because options = distracting. I said that less options can be less confusing, and that KDE has what can be considered an overwhelming amount of options by comparison.


the jar would probably be the most convenient since the packages are probably still the same java application just bundled in a repo


Librewolf is good and quick to update. On mobile Fenix is great and on f-droid. If you want something different there’s Dot which is another privacy focused firefox based browser but it’s still under development and probably not ready for daily use. Fwiw though if you do try to go with something like librewolf you’ll run into more issues with websites not working.


You also don’t need endless customization in a desktop for it to be good. Gnome is a decisive desktop with a decisive development vision. KDE is a lot more customizable but it can feel more disjointed sometimes and it’s app ecosystem is beyond what you need. KDE and it’s ecosystem is known for having an overwhelming amount of options and customization, but there is such a thing as too much. I run KDE on my main PC right now but I’m about to switch to Gnome 41 comes out with system-wide dark mode and the libadwaita redesign is released.

As for extensions, gnome extensions aren’t great because they aren’t officially supported but they aren’t awful either. I only really use the blur-my-shell extension to spice it up a bit. If you rely on extensions like dash-to-dock or other extensions to change the workflow you shouldn’t use a rolling release because you’ll generally want to wait for a little while after a release to update to make sure it wont break any extensions. In my opinion its probably wiser to get adjusted to gnome’s workflow instead of trying to fight it because once you do it’s really productive and smooth, way more polished than KDE feels for sure.

At the end of the day though that’s all up to personal choice. if you want more options go with KDE for sure, but if you want something that “just works” gnome is a great choice.


Yeah I’m really excited about phosh. Gnome has been building up to something like this for a long time, being able to run on everything from a phone to a desktop workstation. And it looks great.

[OP on r*ddit](https://www.reddit.com/r/gnome/comments/s5bd5k/have_you_seen_the_firefoxgnometheme_from/) The active tab needs to be a little more distinct but damn the new libadwaita redesign looks amazing, I'll probably switch to GNOME when version 42 releases.
