  • Tactical OS Basic Training

    I've got a code base, and am tweaking it as we speak. I should have a alpha sometime before Thanksgiving.

    I've been putting some Tactical OS walls

    Here.

    I have one question: which desktop/environment do you all want?

    KDE
    Gnome
    FVWM2
    Fluxbox
    Englihtenment
    Mezzo

    I'm leaning towards away from KDE/GNOME for the simple fact that they tend to be resource hogs. I rather get the same level of configuration from a more lightweight and streamlined desktop, and save the cpu cycles for games.

    I've created the poll to be a multiple choice: the top 3, or top 4, will be released as seperate versions.

    Vote, and tell me why you chose those.

            Yeah, that's slick isn't it?

            In the basic configuration, it's very plain, but like litestep, it's all config files, so you can tweak it anyway you desire.

            That thing at the bottom? That's a script that runs in the background, taking screenshots of open applications, and posting them as icons.

            It's very light on resources too.

              You checked off the box allowing people to make multiple selections. :-)

                i voted for "Who cares? release the damn thing!" :D. i dont really care which you chose, as long as it gives me an option from stupid windows. what would be intresting is an interactive background that tells you the new posts here in the forums. that would get some OHHHH's and Ahhhhh's, i think.....

                    I voted for FVWM2. I can't wait to see how this turns out. Some friends of mine in my dorm are anxious to see it as well.

                      Yeah, we can drop RSS feeds right onto the desktop, no problem. That's simple. :row__577:

                        I did? Oh yeah.... :icon_razz

                        Small number of voters+more votes=better survey.

                          If more people were like me (kicked ass) it wouldn't be a small survey!

                            Yes it's nice of you to take part, but at the same time it's unhelpful to skew the voting.

                            I voted for who cares because you didn't include an option that says not knowledgeble enough to have an opinion.

                              You will notice that the initial post included links to the respective desktops for people to look at. A little more work, and they could see the features that make the choice important.
