Re: GNOME has become a slow dog
Don't know about you guys, but any Windowing platform that unilaterally decided to appropriate itself a piece of the screen, and cannot be "told to go away" , is by definition, dictatorial behaviour. (example .... the Gnome black bar on top)
That is why I choose more "friendly" environments, where Xfce, and LXDE, are kings of the road (+ ahead). Small, simple, capable, configurable, they are not picky on hardware.
but then again, that is my "cup of tea" since I got a gazillion PCs floating around my environment, including some old dogs which still serve some purpose, so I need good common denominators.
EDIT: but my installing Fedora Workstation (FC25 latest version, not an "old version of Gnome") on a 1GB RAM "older" Mini-PC with a Dual Core 2Ghz processor with an i915 GPU should have worked without a hitch, and it alsmot did ........ until GNOME started and I tried to "do anything"... to no avail, which led to my original post "A DOG". shocking !@
EDIT#2: and I can guarantee you that it does not do Fedora any good !
