[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

Some great news come from Mint camp this month. First, Mint has been ranked “Best Distro 2012? by Linux Format! Then, Mint is proud to have in his side one of the most talented hackers, the just 13 years old Esteban -esteban1uy- who was announced as the developer of the month (in Mint). Finally, Cinnamon towards version 1.6 is doing great and I think it is the perfect solution for the people that like a more traditional (than GS) environment yet modern and fancy.

Subject: Unity Debacle Sets Back Ubuntu On The ARM Desktop

[Reply] [ReplyQuoted] [Headers] [Print]

With Unity 2D being abandoned and only providing Unity + Compiz in Ubuntu 12.10 as the default desktop, the out-of-the-box experience for low-powered ARM hardware on the stock Ubuntu desktop is a mess. Last month the decision was made by Canonical to do away with Unity 2D now that LLVMpipe is coming into shape as a decent Gallium3D software rasterizer inside Mesa. LLVMpipe has been talked about since its very early days on Phoronix for running OpenGL on the CPU. With this being the default software fallback now in order to support Compiz, rather than going with the Qt-based Unity 2D, it's okay for x86 users.

Of course, all games out of the Steam library can be used in the Big Picture Mode and it is still possible to use mouse and keyboard controllers. Have not we been waiting for a PC-console for years?
