raymac46 Posted November 20, 2022 Share Posted November 20, 2022 I remember when I first started with Linux (and GNOME 2) how much different the desktop appearance was from Windows XP. After my recent tests with ChromeOS Flex, I note that just about every OS these days - Mac, Windows 11, Chrome OS - has a default look with a dock of some sort at the bottom of the screen and a bunch of icons in the center. Linux has its share of that appearance too - you can get it straight out of the box with Ubuntu, Elementary OS or POP! OS or failing that just install one of the many dock apps on GNOME and away you go. I don't know if everybody set out to copy Mac OS or whether this type of look and feel is best for the users. Certainly it shows that there are more and more types of operating systems that are becoming mainstream than ever before. Odd that something like Cinnamon or Plasma would now seem a bit out of the ordinary. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
