Coding Christian

Coding Christian

Coders generally have their own styles and preferences that artists don’t understand. So, who is supposed to write art software? Coders actually write it. Artists actually use it.

Coders don’t get along with artists or each other. One guy changes his software, coders who use it spend more time learning his changes than improving their own software. 5% more cooperation would eliminate 95% of software glitches. But, coders don’t cooperate with anyone.

Christians fight more and produce even less. Cooperation is such a struggle in coding, if Christian amateur computer programmers just got along, they could revolutionize the software industry over night.

Convergence and the Linuxist

To the meat: for now, I’m back to Xfce on desktop.

If you’re gonna’ be beautiful and stuff, then get on tablets or go home. When doing desktop, do desktop. I’m going with the “eXtremely fast computing experience”!

I always feel ahead of the curve. I wrote an article a few years ago on Seven Reasons I Chose Xubuntu Over All Else. Then, I switched to GNOME one year before Unity made the big back-to-GNOME announcement. In that time, I wrote my own “break-it-in” script, Vrk at verb.ink. The original goal was to “make Unity less unbearable”. In the end, with stability and options I set through gsettings and dconf, I had Unity 7.5 running as the slickest, most user-friendly thing I’ve seen. Unity was stable. Since using GNOME as of 16.04, every install was buggy and glitchy out of the box. Budgie also just arrived on the scene and UBports is taking off.  · · · →
