131: Xfce 4.16, UX Redesign for GNOME 40, Kdenlive, ODROID-Go Super, Steam Sale


Thanks, @MichaelTunnell very informative and entertaining as ever. Neat touch with the cute graphics overlay too - though it did take my poor brain a while to adjust from watching the snowflakes to paying more attention to what you were saying :slight_smile:

I really like the vertical use of space on Gnome 3 as I think it’s more efficient use of area and more “out of the way” than making it horizontal. Having said that, seeing the tweaks that Gnome 3 has gradually gone-through over the years, I’m going to have to trust them with Gnome 40; especially as I am unlikely to see it before 2023 under Debian Stable, I’m guessing. By then I’m sure XFCE (which I also like a lot) will have had another version released as well, so if I don’t like Gnome 40 and can’t configure it I might fall-back to XFCE at that stage. That’s way-off in the future though!

I started my journey with “home computers” as they were called back then with the Commodore 64 and Amiga, so if the ODroid supports emulation of those, who knows, I might actually be interested in one at some stage. Cool idea for retro-gamers, though, definitely!

I guess I’m behind the times with use of markdown, as I haven’t used it yet, though it reminds me a little of LaTeX which I used to write papers back when I was doing research. I’m less inclined to go for an Electron app, though, so will probably try the technology using something else first, when I get around to it.

My personal experience is it makes you feel super trendy jotting down personal notes you’ll never use in any other format.
