• Trying out desktops

    From Kurt Weiske@1:218/700 to All on Fri Jan 15 07:21:00 2021
    I've been playing with Mint and ElementaryOS for my desktop, a slightly
    older Thinkpad laptop (T410 with integrated graphics and an i7 CPU)

    Elementary is intruiging - it's a beautiful UI, clean, with a transparent status bar at the top and a dock by default on the bottom. their *own* apps, without any branding, and different, slightly unintuitive window controls coming from Windows.

    I'm going to play with it for a while, not sure if I like the seamlessness
    of Elementary or the more traditional hierarchical start menu in Mint. Iget the feeling that I'll like Elementary and stick with it once I get used to
    the changes.

    ... Only one element of each kind
