This is such an underrated comment

This was brave. The downvoters just don’t get you.

I came here expecting that to be the last thing on the list.

30000dB: Calling Linux an Operating System in front of an enlightened


kenzer161

# ACTUALLY, WHAT YOUR REFERRING TO AS "LINUX" IS GNU/LINUX, OR AS I HAVE TAKEN TO CALLING IT, GNU + LINUX, THIS IS BECAUSE GNU IS THE OPERATING SYSTEM THAT RUNS ON THE LINUX KERNEL. LINUX ITSELF IS NOT AN OPERATING SYSTEM.

You forgot the shampoo falling down in the shower.

The Dad sneeze.


NatoBoram

Lol, try a HP Pavilion laptop *running Windows 10*… **while idle**. That thing is loud, Jesus.


Backsteingo

At least it's not in power mode. Holy shit they become loud My prof uses one ... you can hear it in the neighboring lecturing hall


NatoBoram

Without power mode, it's just too slow to realistically use in a setting where there's people around you


iamtherealgrayson

Well, good thing my pavillion's fan doesn't work anymore. So now I only have elementary (I just like how it looks) on my machine


NatoBoram

Ah? Mine overheats while in idle, how can you use it without a fan?


ph0ec

I think you have to use it in the fridge. Or maybe in Siberia.


NicoPela

My old HP 14 doesn't have a cooler.


Old-Knitterhemd

Whats with the gnome hate lately ? Is it because of the new release? It actually works smoother now...


Mcpg_

Shhh we don't talk about that here

It's a bandwagon effect. Years ago, GNOME was rewritten to be released as GNOME 3. Some users got angry at the GNOME team for daring to release something that wasn't exactly the same as the previous version, and won't let it go. Points of interest: 1. Until recently, GNOME3 had a memory leak, which wasn't terribly serious and easily cleared. 2. Some people believe, incorrectly, that the entire of GNOME 3 is programmed in Javascript. 3. Some of the more anachronous features have been removed from the default configuration and replaced by extensions, such as they systray and the ability to litter your desktop with shortcuts and various other icons. This was incredibly offensive in certain circles. 4. Installing extensions to get around this is incredibly upsetting for a minority of users. There are a few, fine-grained adjustments to themes that sometimes require the alteration of a CS file, which could take, in extreme cases, *several minutes*. 5. Lacking a sense of belonging, there are some who seek to capitalise on this by making memes and various other comments so they can feel part of a group united in discontent. They may or may not have direct experience of using GNOME. 6. GNOME 3, although now slimmer than it has been for many years, uses more resources than other DEs, and as a result, users who lack the ability to configure their systems correctly are going to be punished a bit harder for it than they would with other desktops.

I'm not sure of it's the vocal majority. I was a GNOME 2 user, but GNOME 3 after 3.18 I felt was solid. I only use a handful of extensions, on essentially bone stock GNOME (with a theme, because man is stock GNOME UGLY). I've only recently started trying out KDE, and I ended up making it function very similar to GNOME. My biggest complaint is AppFolders being touchy persisting between sessions.

I’m just gonna leave this here. https://youtu.be/Z-moXUALZtw


Vladimir_Chrootin

Aside from the somewhat forced (but obligatory) Stalin reference, that's pretty much perfect. It struck a chord as to the similarity between "GNOME 2 was perfect and should never have been changed" and "I'll never upgrade from Windows XP/7/8/etc".


Dredear

I actually like Gnome and all GTK+ related, but I absolutely hate their menu. It just feels so littered and my mind can't just accept the fact that everything is done via 3rd party extensions


[deleted]

And breaks on extensions

It's gotten better but it's still trash

Modern desktop with all the bells and whistles I'd go with KDE plasma, on every machine(not low end hardware) I have that gnome loves to lag on KDE runs like butter moving windows nice and smooth. Otherwise you can go with any low resource desktop you like, i3, mate, xfce, openbox etc


Brillegeit

> Whats with the gnome hate lately ? Gnome has been hated for 20 years, there's no change lately. If anything, I think it's surprising how much Gnome is liked and accepted these days, I still think it's terrible.


chadwickofwv

That's because Gnome 3 is a terrible interface.


Shufflebuzz

But why is it loud? Fan noise? Something else?


satimal

The guy behind you is shouting about how you shouldn't use gnome.


naebulys

Mine is pretty quiet :p

Scale stops at 194 dB, which is why you don't see a Dell 1950.

Shouldn't it be "a laptop trying to do anything useful"?


KingKobra87

Can confirm. Just had to build `polybar-git` and my laptop turned into a wind turbine


KickMeElmo

I use mine for [[email protected]](http://foldingathome.org). I have a GTX 1060 in mine. It heats my room at night in the winter. The white noise isn't bad either, though my Cisco switches are louder. EDIT: Linked the site to keep it from linking incorrectly as an email.

Still a lot less loud than a PC running windows 10

I saw a post that someone was working on making “Gnome 3 lite”


Bumbieris112

This is what happens, when DE consists of 50% javascript code. I am not joking.

Somebody forgot to install a power daemon.

Hey, Gnome isn't THAT bad anymore. I tried it yesterday with Pop!_OS and it wasn't half bad. Ok, i installed Manjaro KDE after 30min but even the animations were butter smooth on this 2010 machine.


basyt

Antergos with its default openbox install is pretty good. I'm using it on an old vaio that has 2 gigs of ram and an i3-2310. Runs okay until I fire up firefox.


element_r

Well, the last release is not that bad, give them a chance!


doggo16818

What about KDE Plasma? That shit gives me the creeps.


Namiki2500

Have been using Gnome for years without any problem.
