Although this release became available quite a long time ago I still wanted to cover all the changes. So here is a look at some of the most important changes for those who are interested.
Most Important Changes
Personally I like to keep up with all the major changes because there are often several key features that go unnoticed.
Time to take a closer look at the controversial Unity desktop for Ubuntu. Unity is designed to be highly efficient for new users, though veterans may have trouble adjusting. Personally I still have mixed feelings about the Unity desktop. The biggest disappointment is the lack of official configuration options.
Unity Desktop Efficiency
Using unity effectively can certainly offer increased productivity for some people, leaving others longing for the good old days.
KDE has for a long time been one of the most popular desktops around. But for Linux newcomers or people looking for a change, maybe I can share some insight.
Learn About KDE
With the introduction of the Plasma desktop some users were left confused and intimidated so hopefully this will clear things up for everyone that may be thinking about making the switch.
After only one day using Cairo Dock I was totally amazed by the jaw dropping effects. I am sure anyone looking for a change will never consider looking back.
About Cairo Dock
But as always I will try to show everyone an in depth look at the majority of features offered with Cairo Dock, and hopefully I can convince many people to switch like I did. So enjoy all of the cool Cairo Dock screenshots with some of the elegant new Xubuntu and Xfce wallpapers.
Here are some of the popular tools for the Gnome desktop environment. All of these fantastic little applications are really the focal point of the Gnome desktop. With such a large development team, Gnome has more extras than any other desktop.
Below you will find all of the fun tools that generally come installed with the Gnome desktop. Of course you can also install many of these extras on other desktop environments as well.
The Gnome control center also contains a settings category for all of your system settings. System settings include package manager settings, and user account settings.
The Gnome control center uses several plugins that are called settings modules. The available settings will depend simply on which settings modules you have installed on your system.
