Another problem in the gnome panel:
There isn't a suspend button. To suspend I have to hold alt and then the shutdown button becomes a suspend button.

This is really bad ux. How can a new user discover this feature? I thought gnome was supposed to be simple

Currently in GNOME, the notification panel contains 4 things:
- song switcher
- notifications
- calendar
- weather

Why is there a song switcher in the notification panel?? Why not put it near the volume of the speaker?

"Lollypop is a lightweight modern music player"

* Checks task manager *
_Lollypop is the most ram hungry program running_

Yeah, rust is great and fast and all...
But... Have you tried compiling a rust project on a raspberry pi? A project like fd, or ripgrep, or bat.

Good luck with that.

I tried with fd and bat, and I get signal 11 errors from the compiler...
Maybe 1gb of memory isn't enough

GNOME 3.34 is now usable! The performance improvements are astonishing!

10 years ago I started using ad blockers because I thought ads were annoying. Now I think that's the _least_ important reason to use them.

I think we should call them "browser firewalls." That more accurately describes their purpose.

Last week, I discovered #xpra ("Screen for X11"), and after a week of use, I'm impressed! xpra.org

I've used it to run graphical applications on one computer and interact with them from a different computer. And I can honestly say that I can't notice a difference compared to running the app locally.

It's basically what I always wanted #vnc to be—but without any of the lag I always experienced with VNC.
