Whats your favourtie Linux desktop feature ?

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Interested to hear your favorite feature of your current Linux desktop.


Mine is 'Suspend'. Less than 2secs to shutdown to 4 watts from the wall, space bar a week later and less than 2secs to resume with even the game, video or music continuing as if time was paused and with a full network connection coolsmiley02.gif



(im using the docky session manager helper for 1 push suspend)

Is that wired or wireless connection?

wired. But wireless auto-connects after a few seconds.

Which distro do you use?

I can't live without my tiling window managers. Simply too used to them to go back to more traditional ways of managing windows. That and "virtual desktops" or "work spaces" which ever floats your boat, are absolutely great.

Fortunately even when in a traditional desktop I can do all of my work in a single terminal with tmux splits and windows in much the same manor. So it's not like I'm ever without my basic workflow no matter the machine.

Absolutely invaluable.

Which tiling manager do you use? I use a stacking manager, wondering what the advantage of tiling would be?

An extremely hacked up version of DWM as well as XMonad depending on the machine. And I can use mine as both tiling and floating ( or stacking as you call it ). A perk of being dynamic tongue.gif

Well ya stacking in general is just the most common method for most DEs and WMs, but the stacking manager I use is far more efficient at stacking than any other stacking manager I have used.

The fact that I can do whatever I want basically. My only issue is GTK3 keep breaking with updates, and some driver issue from time to time.

KDE and the seemingly unlimited customization, add-ons, etc. And it's just plain slick.
