    The new sandbox is cool. If it's the one I'm thinking of it's basically LXC enforced by SELinux. So a copy-on-write SELinux sandbox.
     
  3. Dang, I completely forgot that it would be released today! I'll have to give it a try.

    Shame about the lack of Xfce 4.10, and the awful name.

    "Fedora 18 will be called "Spherical cow"

    And re. "Shame about the lack of Xfce 4.10", if I can install it I'm sure others can.

    a quick question this is Out or beta/ alpha o_O

    Good thing i didn't finnish the last 16 download damn it's huge
     
  7. "Spherical Cow..." Wow. LOL. However I stil assert that "Spherical Cow" is better than "Beefy Miracle."

    BTW, I'm liking Gnome Shell 3.4. It's finally fast enough to be usable! I still would like a way to turn off the animations and drop shadows, but I have to take back what I've said about its usability. The expose/launcher window model is superior to the menu/taskbar in a lot of ways, assuming your computer has the GPU (or CPU) power for it.

    OTOH, I remember E16 being able to do shrunken window snapshots and such back in 2007, faster and without any use of OpenGL; so I still think the use of 3D acceleration is rather silly.

    (You can also do window snapshots in FVWM. IIRC this is usually done using Imagemagick to grab a window screenshot and shrink it, then present it as an icon. So it's not like the tools for doing such things are hard to come by, either.)
