Ok, each time I have tried Gnome3 in the past it has lasted moments before I returned to KDE or to a window manager only set up ( like WMii , Ratpoison, DWM, euclid, or IceWM )
Question , should I give Gnome3 another try ?
@miwilc I looked at it , and thenrealised who the dev's behind it are
A few years ago I set up the then debian based SolusOS for my then 75/6 yr old father to use, and despite talk of a SolusOS 2 it was just dropped and the dev's basically walked away from it leving it completly unsupported and broken
Later they launched EvolveOS ( which changed to Solus) & various projects including Budgie, so no I wont be trying it.
SolusOS broke any trust I had in the team involved.
@DistroJunkie I came to my sences, retrying Gnome is no longer an option , KDE-Plasma is (for DE's) as good as it gets imo, with XFce a close second, and LxQT third.
I really like using WM's only, however woudl need to be in the right mood to configure one or to adjust an existing one.
The RatPoisonrc file i used to use can be read here:
If you are interested. probably got my WMii config file somewhere too
@JaseEW I'm a fan of Xfce. I also really like I3. It depends on the purpose of the computer involved. My daily driver distro is Linux Mint, not because it's my favorite, but because it's what I like to show non-Linux users. When they show interest, out comes the USB and the question, "would you like to give it a test drive?" IMO Linux Mint is the best hook to set in a windows users mouth because of the drivers.
