Linux Floats Fluid Desktop Design
Linux Floats Fluid Desktop Design : This offers a new twist on the usual Linux desktop environment experience. Developer Edward Snyder recently released the second alpha version of Liquid Lemur Linux 2.0. It offers a hybrid desktop experience that combines the Window Maker window manager with elements of the Xfce desktop. The Liquid Lemur has been around for a few years now , but it has gone through several directional changes since its conception. Its start-and-stop development saga included earlier releases based on non-Debian repositories and full use of the Xfce or KDE desktops.
The hybrid desktop that Snyder built into Liquid Lemur is a bit of a challenge to figure out at first. Anyone familiar with Linux should be able to adapt to the new interface but will need to do lots of trial and error. Since the goal is to customize and create, much of the interface takes on a modular look and feel. The bottom line is Liquid Lemur is a distro I definitely will watch as the alpha 2 release progresses. Snyder’s vision for a better Linux mousetrap has promise. His directional shift in this release is noteworthy. Keep your eyes on this as it could go very big indeed.
