linux mint web apps

I know little of what I do, but running Twitter and Facebook as web apps on Linux Mint works well. Use Vivaldi browser to have the separate profile option.

— opens right up into the site all logged in
— isolated profiles
— no cookie mixing

A big one is that it solves Twitter’s compulsive refresh problem.

I like it.

UbuntuDDE – Linux

I have been curious about UbuntuDDE, which is Ubuntu with the Deepin Desktop Environment (DDE). DDE is the desktop environment of the Deepin Linux distribution.

“Deepin is the top Linux distribution from China, devoted to providing a beautiful, easy-to-use, safe, and reliable operating system for global users.” (Wuhan Deepin Technology Co.,Ltd)

It is supposed to be “Beautiful and Wonderful,” so I had to see it. I downloaded the image and booted live from USB stick.

It really seems to be beautiful and wonderful. I played with it for a few, took this screenshot of the default desktop, then went back to my usual system, which is Linux Mint with Xfce desktop.

I didn’t spend much time with UbuntuDDE due to being very pleased with what I already use. I can keep it in mind for the future.

My desktop computer might be nearly ancient, but the operating system is fresh as a daisy. Riding Miss Daisy. 🌼

To have more fun with the new headphones, I added an equalizer to Mizz Sweet Lady Linux box. Workin’ fine.

Ah, the beauty. 🎶

linux mint xfce

Whenever I install a new computer operating system, the main test is how fast can it open up that “special” directory with 20 thousand pics and other media files in it.

One must be able to page through the media without hesitation or hard drive thrash.
