    OMG!! So sexy! Which gnome version is this? I am rocking Gnome 3.4 on Debian 7.4 x64. Is it worth switching to Ubuntu 14.04?

    That's beautiful. My issue is that GNOME felt a bit sluggish since I have 3 displays. Compositing effects were pretty choppy, but on a single display it was fine. I decided to just go with a VM since all I really wanted was a real terminal. So the prettiness factor didn't really matter much.

    Tada!

    Granted I don't use it like that. I see something more like this... Tada!

    If all you need is a terminal and some basic tools, Unity is a nice alternative to having to split up my either of my RAIDs.

    I came back to check in and see a few replies. Thanks for the comments...:)

    My move over to linux is a recent decision, I've been playing around with it for about six months now and I'm glad I did the switch. Thought I'd be wise though...and stick to the ubuntu distros for the first year, although...I've been experimenting with the other distros non-stop. Curiousity more than anything, but I wanted to see if I liked any of the other desktop environments better. For now, I'm sticking with Gnome, although on simpler equipment I really like the Xubuntu type distros(I also love LXLE). As I've mentioned in my sig, I'm watching Elementary OS and the Ozon project rather closely...I like how both of those look and probably will end up with one of the two after the first year is up.

    Killer_Rubber_Ducky, it's Gnome 3.10. A lot of guys seem to have already moved up to 3.12, I'll wait until 3.14 is stable. To answer your question...I'd stick with Debian Gnome and just upgrade your shell. Isn't there also a new version of Debian out as well? Just update everything.

    Aquinus, I wanted to mention that I did try Debian's Gnome Edition and it did seem to run buttery smooth on my pc, even better than Ubuntu Gnome...although, I didn't try it in a multi-monitor set up...I sure did like it. It felt real solid...I was just having too many troubles with my wi-fi to continue using it without doing a little research(aka: learning) how to overcome the problem.

    For my terminal...I use this https://extensions.gnome.org/extension/442/drop-down-terminal/

    These USB flash drive installs are a real blessing for easy installs, but they can also be a curse(as is the case with me). When you can download a half dozen different distros and install them on flash drives in under an hour it becomes a curse...you want to try them all. :laugh:.

    I'm experimenting with Spatry's new 'Cup of Linux' distro this week.

    Best,

    Liquid Cool

    damn that is a sexy desktop you have there! To answer your reasoning for the smoother gnome experience on Debian; Debian gnome is 3.8 which is way more stable than 3.10 or 3.12. I cant actually upgrade to 3.10 yet as there are still debian wheezy libraries that are not converted or made for 3.10. If I ran testing branch or experimental branch, sure but I like my rock solid stability. I unfortunately gave Ubuntu 14.04 Gnome edition a shot and I wish I never made the switch. It is so much more jittery than Debian. Now, Linux Mint 17, that is a sexy Distro. They have a Debian version of Linux Mint as well and it may be that Linux Mint will drop Ubuntu sources in the future. I hope SteamOS (Debian 7.4 X64) takes off. I dont believe there is a new version of Debian out yet.

    What did you do to your desktop to make it look like that? What extensions etc did you use?

    I'm watching the steam distro rather closely as well. I know many who are using ubuntu would like to move away from it for one reason(Amazon ties) or another(Unity) and I think anyone who can come up with a Debian based Gnome OS that is user friendly will have hit one out of the ballpark.

    I mentioned I'd probably go with elementary OS or ozon OS, but probably on the laptop...:). Debian Gnome or anything that could compare in stability would be my top choice overall and as you mentioned...steam OS is a good candidate. Once popularity picks up, it really could take off big. Although...ozon OS is a mystery distro and I don't know if it's going to be based on Arch, Debian, or Ubuntu...so I'm watching news there.

    A new version(v. 2.0.2) of Conky Manager just came out, I use CM for my weather/time conky's. The icon theme is numix circle(taken from ozon OS). Almost everything else I just get from here.

    https://extensions.gnome.org/


    The menu is Gno-Menu. My favorite extension is 'Activities Configurator'. Excellent extension.

    I will also mention...I know interfacelift was the go-to spot for wallpapers for a long time(at least for myself), but I've become a real fan of this site here. Top notch stuff.

    I finally got a drive just for Linux so I didn't have to start any Chaos with my already installed EFI Windows installation. Debian was very unhappy about being installed to boot from EFI, but Ubuntu did it no problem.

    I hope it's minimal enough, I'm using i3... and if you start asking yourself "Where are the menus or buttons", the answer is that there are none. Just a terminal-like launcher (activated by mod + d) along with some basic hot keys for opening a browser and a terminal. How do you like that for simple?

    I should also add that i3 is a tiling window manager, however it does allow windows to float like the terminal is in this screenshot. Generally speaking though, Windows will snap to an adjustable grid and like any WM, it supports multiple desktops.

    The screenshot is big because of the 3 displays but the launcher is open on the left most display where screenFetch is.

    My friend has returned to me. I'm gonna need a new Ubuntu sticker soon, that one is from 6.06 LTS. Or, because I'm not a fan of Ubuntu these days, some other distro, preferably one who can give me free stickers.

    Anyway, for some reason I really like Slitaz, despite it being pretty useless to me. It's a bitch to get power saving stuff on laptops to work. And everything else. This is it from a VM.
