Re: Mate or Cinnamon?

As a guy who has both installed on his system, I prefer Cinnamon for looks and modernity, and 'cause it seems nicer and more mature than MATE, and MATE for performance and usability, so either's good for me.

Re: Dedoimedo: "Cinnamon and MATE are the future"

Hey, Cinnamon and MATE are awesome, I have 'em both installed on my machine, and really, really dig 'em and love Cinnamon, they're awesome alternatives to the Unity that Ubuntu came with. The only negative of having Cinnamon and MATE on my OS: gotta add the PPAs, which requires some time in the comm...

Re: Still use floppy disks

I quit using floppies for data storage years ago, but I made hanging ceiling art outta my old floppies by chaining them together with string.

Re: Ubuntu's Come a Long Way

Ubuntu + Cinnamon = flat-out awesome! I started using Cinnamon in Quantal today, and really, really digging it so far.

Theme: Darkmint panel and window + DkGreen GTK + Malys Uniblue icons.

Re: Clock

I'm currently using Cinnamon on Ubuntu Quantal, and in order to set my clock to 12-hr, AND put the full date on it in addition to seconds, I just used this site, and took the preset that had the date and 12-hr time, and then added the weekday, year, and seconds to it. http://linux.die.net/man/3/strf...

Re: Dedoimedo: "Cinnamon and MATE are the future"

Cinnamon could still attract Windows refugees though, I mean its start menu is Windows-like enough, and hey, it's basically GNOME 3 done right from what I've picked up about it.

Re: Dedoimedo: "Cinnamon and MATE are the future"

Coolios! I could see the traditional desktop battle going down to MATE vs. Cinnamon as the top two, while KDE and Xfce will still be players in the game. Meanwhile in the touch-oriented game, it'll be down to Unity vs. GNOME Shell. :)

Re: Which would be the better distro in a school environment

Edubuntu's Ubuntu that's aimed at the classroom, and you can get the Edubuntu packages on Mint, I'm sure.

Re: Which would be the better distro in a school environment

K-12 = Kindergarten through 12th grade. Pretty much 5 years old to 18 years old as far as age goes. I mean you wouldn't wanna try and teach a kindergartener or 4th-grader Arch or Gentoo, would 'ya? :lol:

Which would be the better distro in a school environment?

Hiya! I've had the idea floating around in my head for a couple days of somehow getting my town's K-12 public school district to at least try FOSS and see how they like it, and I'm leaning more towards Edubuntu for the workstations, but still, which would be the better distro for the workstations in...

Re: Distros of interest and why.

What about Puppy 5.2.8 and Puppy 5.3.3? In addition, what's Puppy 5.4.4 going to be based off on? 'Cause 5.2.8's based on Lucid Lynx, 5.3.3's based on Slackware, I assume 5.4.4's going to be based on Precise Pangolin? I mean there's going to be some Puppy release based on Precise, I bet, which would...
