Mostly, I’ve been working with openSUSE, so a lot of things I been doing with this Green Gecko. The most think I never done it while worked with Windows. Well, listening musics with Banshee or watching movie with Totem would be the usual things, as well as on Windows. But setting your alarm clock or rumbling your own desktop would never been the same as before.
Unfortunately, my notebook was kind of “an old one”, so it doesn’t have the “right” GPU to process any marvelous graphical effect that openSUSE can brought about.
I used to wake up in the morning by a nice alarm that set-up every work days on Green Gecko, so what time did I wake up this morning?
Ha ha…, but used to get up before the alarm sounded, my instinct told me that my body can react to noise source even before it produced any sound, since it a matter of survival on the dreamy land. Of course that would be the last alarm, I mean there are a lot others before to ring, by utilize my two cells every morning.
The next thing, I found that now even new Green Gecko support Faenza from within its “contrib repo”, so I can enjoy the nice icon set which is fully integrated. But another unfortunate thing, that avant windows navigator were only ready by “factory repo”, I can use it, since I don’t intent to use the Tumbleweed again this time.
And if I get bored, I would try some new desktop effect (with ultimate option). But having GPU behind the today standard would be never give the best effect. In the end, it just look like rumbling my desktop.
Then, my notebook just doesn’t support this kind of ultimate desktop effect. Even compiz fusion would just a laugh when installed in this old notebook. But in fast motion it still looks nice, so it not a waste at all in the end.
It just nice to have some experiments with open source things, you shall never get bored.
