Depends on your preferences. GNOME 3 stock looks much more attractive than KDE stock IMO.

No, what you need is a day with 48 hours do you can post more. xD

Is Gnome 3 with all these tweaks anywhere close to OS X Yosemite? even the beat is very fast and fluid.

post #122944 of 130881

Caught up on everything except for some Sunday shows (Jinsei, Sabagebu) and SAO2 (still need to finish the prequel)
So far I like: Rurumo, Glasslip, Locodol and Shinryakusha (tbh, throw in Prisma 2wei too :p)

Tokyo Ghoul and Zankyou no Terror - look like quality stuff, just not my kind. Sorry!

 

I was hoping to get through the first volume of the Shinryakusha light novel before the anime started airing, but that's gonna have to wait as I just picked up Nareru! SE 3 AND Tsuki Tsuki 3. Being an inconsistent, slow reader doesn't help either! Yurika and Haruhi FTW!

 

Nozaki-kun is something I would call stepping out of the comfort zone for me, sort of; never got far with the other heavily female-geared shows in the past, with a lone exception of Free. Let's see if I can sit through this one till the very end... 

 

Other shows I find decently entertaining to keep watching: 
Hime goto (short enough to not care either way)
Hana Yamata (may drop this one, dunno)
Ai Mai Mi (plain bizarre more than funny, but again, short)
Momokyun Sword (Onihime, yeay)
Yama no Susume 2 (10 min looks just about right, why didn't they do this with teh prequel?)
Argevollen (may turn out decent)
Rail Wars (heard anime version is suxors, but whatever)

 

Now back to check out Aldnoah Zero!

Linux will probably be faster than OS X in most ways, so probably. I only say this because generally Linux is much lighter in weight compared to OS X. However, since OS X is closed source and designed around Apple equipment, optimization might be slightly better for OS X on Apple devices (not Hackintoshes) than Linux which is more for a broader, general audience.

I just realized, wasn't the Red Lotus mentioned in Avatar: The Last Airbender? I think it was Iroh who was in either the Red or White Lotus.

Iroh was a member of the White Lotus, who sought to bring peace throughout the lands. That's why he always played Pai Sho.

I dunno about the Red Lotus though. I don't remember it in Avatar: The Last Airbender, but something about it sounds familiar to me.

what are some of the hottest desktop oriented distros these days? I was with Ubuntu back in 11.04 days, haven't really looked back after I had it set up with AWM lanucher / compiz to my liking. Got any ideas what I should try on my secondary rig, hopefully something that would teach me a thing or two? A complete noob here, not too afraid to work with the console and messed around with compiling a TV card driver if anything.

 I like the visual of KDE more than Gnome to say the truth, it's more familiar too me, GNOME 2 and 3 look too much OS X to me, and when i'm suing Linux, i don't want another Mac, i've used a pretty cool dirt of Linux called Puppy Linux, the entire distort is about 130MB, can be easily recorded on any format and booted from that, pretty nice tool for maintenance and very light, really useful if you ask me, the interface if i'm not mistaken is KDE, what makes it really fast and light.

Screw it; I'm curious to know what the internals look like anyway.

Freight forwarding?

Aww you don't like Ghoul and Terror? It's fine. Some people like the more SoL or ecchi tastes which is fine.

Ubunut is still at the top obviously for linux distros. But there are many others of course.

I would go with Debian, a really nice system, easy to use and you can learn a nice amount of stuff if you want too.

Since you're on Head-Fi, it's obviously AudioPhile Linux. : p

I guess you can make some kind of VR helmet like the NerveGear, so you can be on Head-Fi even during sleep. xD

 

And Windows 7/8 are both fine operating systems, don't feel bad. :P

Ubuntu and all of the Ubuntu based, along with Fedora, are the go-to's for newcomers.

GNOME is nothing like OS X imo. That top bar might be the only resemblance but it doesn't function like OS X's at all. If you want OS X like, go look at Elementary OS. GNOME is a blend of Windows and OS X. KDE looks more like Windows by default but I'm not a fan of the default behaviors like single-click to open and hover to highlight/select. Not my kind of thing.

I would not recommend Debian for a newcomer. It's something you build from ground up. Ubuntu is based off Debian anyways so the experience won't be that different when dealing with repos and debian-specific functions.

 

XFCE might be my go-to since GNOME3 looks so nice yet does everything so wrong. Although Openbox + Tint2 has been treating me well in Archbang and Crunchbang.

Well it's not that I disregard serious sci-fi stuff from IG et al., I actually adored Psycho-Pass quite a bit. Going back a bit further, I really enjoyed Real Drive. A bit of a fan of Dystopian world, No. 6 was also good, except the BL-ish overtone and the whole spritiual BS about Elyurias irked me a good bit. Suisei no Gagantia was simply GREAT!

 

Admittedly SoL is my staple, but I do like some suspense and action if it is done well! Let's just say I am a bit picky (going by my own standards) when it comes to certain genre...
