Yeah, looking at that list, I think I was in the Slackware 1.1.0-2.0 timeframe. I started with 1.1.0, and ended at 2.0. It wasn't ready, and neither was I at the time.

I'd love to hear about that as well. My wife has been a Mac user since forever, but she's increasingly upset with changes in MacOSX. Anything that might ease her transition to something I can support would be welcome.

I saw this: http://synetcon.deviantart.com/art/Xosemite-OS-X-Yosemite-on-XFCE-533038187 and this: https://www.xfce-look.org/content/show.php/mintymac-osx-theme-complete?content=166789 and this: http://www.noobslab.com/2016/04/macbuntu-1604-transformation-pack-for.html

Most are skins, but the first is the best looking. Although I don't read Spanish. https://www.reddit.com/r/unixporn/comments/3yarus/xfce_os_x_el_capitan_wannabe/ is another one, plus: http://www.linuxslaves.com/2016/05/macbuntu-mac-os-x-yosmite-theme-for-ubuntu1604.html

XFCE is very minimal. VERY minimal. Lightweight, so a good choice for a system that can't otherwise keep up, but you lose a lot of the ordinary extras - and it's not the most intuitive environment to use either.

 

There is a reason I use Cinnamon; but there is a reason XFCE exists.

I have noticed something, on both Windows and Linux. It takes Firefox forever to load, and Chrome almost no time at all. Why is that I wonder?

 

Disable the auto-update check and see if that resolves it. Firefox seems to hang if it can't get a response out of the update servers.

It is not that, it just loads lots slower than Chrome. Both in Windows and Linux. Chrome just seems "snappier" than Firefox.

No, I don't think that is it since it does the same thing on both the Winders and Linux machines. I run the same extensions on both with the sole exception of Noscript on Firefox. But I am talking boot time, Chrome just loads faster, and seems more standards compliant.

 

Some malaware or wacky extension? you are on SSD already don't you?
