    Terminal Color

    The title is misleading. There are many terminal emulators out there that isn't gnome terminal, from the 'lightweight' ones such as st or rxvt to vte-based terminal emulator such as your gnome-term or termite... and you shouldn't say 'terminal' to refer to 'terminal emulator', those are technically two different things. Cheerio

    PCLinuxOS is GREAT!

    ^ e-{censored}in-zactly (excuse the language, can't help it ) . I still remember those good ol' days when Ubuntu was still at its infancy ( hence still great ). Suffice to say, i will never put my faith in Canonical for my production box anymore. anyway, enough about *buntu. Back to pclinuxos, i like their semi rolling-rolling release cycle. I like their non-pretentious way of not claiming their distro to be stable (hence, users will be prepared). I also like their commitment towards package signing and security which is a lot better than another distro where all the 'kool kids' like to use ( cough... Arch ...cough)

    PCLinuxOS is GREAT!

    I fully agreed that Unity is disruptive , and counter-intuitive And no, i don't think that will change when Mir arrive The main problem with recent ubuntu development is they try to reinvent the wheel and doing a poor job at it ( upstart, unity, Mir, etc) thus isolating them from the rest of the linux community ( making bug fixing, patches, etc a lot harder) @alessandro17 Without any disrespect to ubuntu developers, i think linux mint maintainers did good job in making ubuntu a lot more stable. After all, i got a lot more breakages in ubuntu than debian sid Just my opinion and personal experience though

    Anything other than *buntu is great

    Low Res with R9 280 and no sound

    unfortunately what you are describing above are non-issues, it's obvious that you have no clue as to how to run osx86 on your machine for instance if you've deleted the same kernel extensions needed to boot your graphics correctly, why ask? there is no out-of-the-box-dumbed-down-everything solution here start using your search engine better , and google / duckduckgo / bing / whatever it read the installation guide(s) correctly stop being a help vampire pardon me for my harsh words , best of luck

    The "Explain your nickname" thread

    from an insect my nickname sucked big time
  9. i think it'll be ONO ( OS X is Not OS X) as apple shove every possible iOS interface to Mac But i hope it won't happen in the near soon
  10. so the project is still alive then? last time i heard the project was abandoned as not enough people seems to take interest in running os x app on Linux

    developing in a Mac

    to answer question number 2 , i think it's fair to say that you can always make any program in plain C since mac shipped with its own gcc / clang or you can always get homebrew to install several needed libraries of course. as for the IDE for C you can use xcode , i've heard several guys using qt creator in mac to develop in plain C too, but i think both will be a complete overkill
  13. you should correct it to x79 instead of z79 dude , you can check rampagedev's wordpress.

    does anyone like gnome shell/ eg gnome 3

    ^ the right hardware hmmm... not really personally i think gnome 3 is visually stunning , but the amount of resources it use up are quite a lot compared to other DE ( something like XFCE , LXDE, or the good ol' gnome 2 ) , not to mention the amount of dependencies it needs, and the amount of time it takes to be compiled if by chance you are using a source-based linux distribution like i do. but who am i to judge, it's a matter of taste anyway. as a power user i prefer some dynamic lightweight window manager like awesome or bspwm. Both are certainly customizable , keyboard-driven , dual monitor friendly , and certainly a lot lighter than gnome, good news is awesome can be used in conjuntion to gnome shell as well)
