A Lighthearted Look at Linux Users

Well I work on window's systems M-F at work so I am used to their bloated and buggy environment

I can certainly see that working on Windows all day as an IT Professional would make you want something completely different in your spare time.

I was forced to use Windows at work but I was not tasked with maintaining it. Besides that was back in the NT4 days.

As a retiree I found that the Windows 7 layout and menu was fine for me. I even use OpenShell to maintain that look and feel with Windows 10. No apps, no live tiles.

When it comes to Linux I always gravitate to that same layout - taskbar/system tray at the bottom, icons on the panel, start button of some type. The exception is in GNOME but I've still got a honking big dock at the bottom with all my favorite icons on it.

I suppose that is why I like Linux Mint. All the LM desktops I've used look like that. And of course that is the default layout for LXQt.

Well that has only been for the last 6 years. Before that, I had not used windows in well over a decade. I was using tiling environments long before this job.

That and I have a linux machine at work as well, so its not just windows. It's just my main work machine runs Win 10 Enterprise.

One Window Maker dockapp I cannot use is the system monitor. How can you read a 64X64 pixel monitor?

 

Which one are you referring to ?

I think it is WmSysMon. I may not be using it properly.

If it is the one above this may help,

For information on running wmsysmon, execute 'wmsysmon -h'

 

Mind you it looks to me as though it is doing too many things. Do you really need to know about swap these days ? You might find it easier to install a couple of dock apps that do just one or two things.
