Update on the March of Progress: How Slashdot's New Look Is Shaping Up

PenisLands big nuts (237 comments)

It's not just ugly, it's confusing too. I couldn't work out how to post a new comment, so I'm posting a reply to yours. I don't especially care though if they end up going ahead with this redesign. It'd be quite interesting to see what would happen to the site. Maybe most of the users would quit or something. I'm curious about it.

GNOME 3.6 To Include Major Revisions

PenisLands Re:And the other side of the problem... (327 comments)

you are free ... to keep the application version you currently have

It's not that easy on Linux. Often, keeping an older version of some program involves using a really out of date distro like Debian stable, compiling a bunch of crap yourself, or hoping that someone has decided to make binary packages for the old version that work on your distro.

Why are you trying to force us all to keep using the same UI you are using just because you're so used to it?

If anyone's forcing anything on anyone, it's really GNOME 3 which is doing the forcing. This is what upset me the most about GNOME 3 - it seems you deliberately removed and hid a ton of configuration options that existed in GNOME 2. Why do you need to install an extra program to change the theme, the fonts, put back the minimise/maximise buttons, disable GUI animations, etc? Why is it no longer possible to specify a custom GUI colour scheme like it was in GNOME 2?
Why isn't the classic style interface easily available as an option? Well I suppose there's the 'fallback mode' which works like GNOME 2, but I heard that it was going to be 'deprecated' and removed at some point.

It's either innovation and having to learn new things, or the stagnation of keeping things exactly as they used to be.

Great. How would you like me to come over to your house and innovate things for you? "I don't think you should have your TV here. It'd increase usability and look better over here. Alright, btw we're going to paint all your walls white because that's how Apple does it. Looks nice right? Of course it does. Oh this toaster is awful, it has far too many buttons. Better replace that right away"

You probably aren't even going to read this anyway. But whatever. Sorry if this is inflammatory, it's just that I used GNOME 2 for six years and really liked it. It had some problems but it was good. I felt like GNOME 3 took everything I liked and threw it away, and at the same time tried to force everything I hated on me.

You Can't Bypass the UI Formerly Known As Metro On Windows 8

PenisLands Re:Prediction (444 comments)

In other words... "dammit ACs never post anything of value that's worth reading ... except for all those times that they do. Shit, why won't the whole world help me pretend this never ever happens?!" Fucking people, not doing exactly what you'd like them to do with their own personal preferences. The nerve! By the way your sig is hilariously ironic. ACs contributing useful posts at least once in a while is a "shade of gray" you don't seem to recognize. Maybe a logged-in user will reply to this and quote it so you can see the hypocrisy. Would that interfere with your cozy black-and-white world of "AC bad, pseudonym good"? Ah heck yeah man benis denis.

Youtube users rage against channel redesign

PenisLands PenisLands writes  |  about 5 years ago

PenisLands writes "On the 15th of July, YouTube will be launching a new design for user channel pages. The new design had undergone beta testing for some months, and during that time it had been optional — you could opt in to try it out, and if you didn't like it you could switch back to the old view. Now they're finally getting ready to make it mandatory, and it seems like YouTube's userbase has flown into a rage. Angry comments from users who dislike the new design are being posted on the YouTube blog post and video every minute, and several anti-redesign videos have appeared in the past few days. Will YouTube cave in to the demand from this onslaught?"

PenisLands writes "AMD will soon deliver open graphics drivers for linux, according to a blog on techtarget.com. From the article:
"AMD will soon deliver open graphics drivers, said Henri Richard just a few minutes ago, and the audience at the opening keynote of the Red Hat Summit broke into applause and cheers. Richard, AMD's executive vice president of sales and marketing, promised: "I'm here to commit to you that it's going to get done." He also promised that AMD is "going to be very proactive in changing way we interface with the Linux community."""
