Don't be hard on new Linux users tho. Even if they tweak their UI to something they're familiar with at the start.

Agreed 👍.

Personally, I just use KDE. It's not my fault Microsoft is tweaking their Windows for a decade to look like it.

[-] [email protected] 20 points 2 months ago

I’ve suffered through Gnome, I’ve used AwesomeWM. I’ve waded through Cinnamon and XFCE. And I finally landed on KDE.

KDE grants me the ability to arbitrarily redesign my UI on a whim without much effort.

I can go from something to custom to Nostalgia Drowning.

And right now I’m drowning in Windows 7 Aero.

im a little new to Linux and I keep seeing that KDE plasma is the most powerful/customizable DE, but I can never find anything in settings that changes it much more than you can customize windows? are there any resources to learn how to really customize plasma?

If you go into the appearance settings, you can install global themes that completely change how Plasma looks. Be careful with these though cause it's possible to screw up your desktop with some of them.

I used windows all my life. I don't want to relearn everything, especially considering most of the original designs stems from wanting to be user friendly. Unless you mean mimic as in a weird 1:1 look copy then yeah, it's weird.

I used to work in IT. We had a sales guy, English, real Delboy type. He demanded we buy him a MacBook Air so he could look cool when he got it out at client meetings. However because he didn’t know the first thing about macOS, he made us wipe it and install windows XP on it.

It sent shivers down my spine every time he turned it on and the chimes started…

I used to work in a school where the English head was a total Mac fanboy and kept trying to get us to buy him one. Eventually he just used his budget to buy one himself (the budget that was supposed to be used to buy the kids useless stuff likes books and learning material). It just sat in their staff room completely useless and gathering dust because it wasn’t compatible with all the systems that we were using to manage the network (as he’d been warned). Two years after buying it somebody went in there and installed Windows XP on it (this was a while ago) and finally it started getting used as much as the other cheap PCs that were a fraction of the price.

No one gets in between me and my windows aero theme.

I use Windows icons on desktop files to indicate Windows SMB shares or NTFS partitions. It's practical IMO.

So you install Malware?

@Sibbo I tweak Linux to look the way I wanted Windows to look like
