I’ve been seriously slacking on the Sabayon stuff, but been hanging with the community on the Official Sabayon Facebook page and watched a thread on a background image erupt into a mountain. It really is amazing at how a small change to a GUI send people running for their pitchforks and torches. I’ve been guilty of this in the past myself and probably will be in the future too. The GUI is very important to us and it’s drastic unchangeable changes really ticks a guy off. Gnome and KDE both felt the feedback when they revamped their GUIs. I abandoned Gnome cause of the gnome shell. Some love the gnome-shell and brag it up and down. Gnome maybe pays them to do it….
Anyway, I finally took some time tonight to test latest daily Sabayon Forensics to make sure all was well. It’s probably been a month since I test a daily. I pop in the freshly made live usb stick and boot it up. I see some of the new artwork very briefly cause my computer booted up so damn fast. I remember the good old days of enjoying a song while my computer booted. What is going on here? I turn on my computer and it’s like booted instantly. No music, a brief flash of artwork and I am at my desktop. So I had to browse to the backgrounds directory to see the new artwork and change my desktop wallpaper to it since Sabayon Forensics has different wallpaper and ya know what? I like it. If ya don’t like it, the fix is so easy, it’s not permanent unlike gnome-shell. So lets put the pitchforks and torches away and enjoy. If I like it, it has to be good right? At least it’s not blue, green or yellow. Although, a SpongeBob SquarePants desktop would be pretty sweet. Hey, I saw you do that facepalm!
Oh and by the way, if you miss the boot up song, No fear – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgiMpxb-lC4 even has the lyrics so you can sing along. Regardless guys, I still <3 our community no matter what colors ya are in to
