I am trying and tried several time to use KDE, I am finding even it is a good DE, I'll return to Gnome at the end. I guess KDE should revoke the overall concept, I just don't like it to be similiar to Windows  biggrin.gif

At the end I use KDE less than 30 min before I revert back to Gnome. sweat.gif
But this time I took the opportunity to install tumbleweed distribution. Currently its using Gnome 3.16 so many pleasant UI changes.
And also.. terminal transparency is back!! drool.gif

I am using the extension, Simple Dock to place the dock at below and Panel OSD to place the notification on top. Freyon extension to display my temperatures had some error with it as my desktop went to white oops if I am enabled it. The rest of the icons are default adwaita, nothing more. All Gnome users from any distros are able to the same as well.

ok just change the wallpaper to more on openSUSE instead of SuSE.

From my pc, dual boot with windows 8.1. For Gnome, animation is relying on Mutter, I would say not 'fully animated desktop effect' as KDE.

Hello guyz,

First of all, sorry if I'm posting at wrong section, since I don't know where to put. My question is, which one is suitable for me between Linux Mint & Elementary OS.

I will use Linux platform as my main OS for desktop home usage. I will use it for my Thesis Project (eg:Web browsing/words/editing/programming/music/video) non gaming for me at all.

As far as I heard, Linux Mint is stable OS currently and very lite. But, I fall in love with Elementary OS interface, but Elementary OS is not pretty stable like Mint. Is there any method to adapt overall interface Mint similar to Elementary OS? Or does Elementary OS is suit for my home usage?

Thank you in advance for sifus, sorry for my bad english btw smile.gif

Stability wise, I don't think eOS is going to hinder your work whatsoever. It did crashed on me once, but I wasn't really devoted to using it since I needed a more lightweight distro, so I can't really say much about it.

You can, however install Pantheon (eOS's desktop environment) but it will take you more to get it to work due to dependencies and compatibilities issues (different versions, etc.). There's a guide out there, but it's outdated. If there's one for Ubuntu, I'm sure you can get it work on Mint with the same guide, since Mint is based on Ubuntu.

EDIT: This guide (http://www.itworld.com/article/2697704/install-elementary-os-pantheon-desktop-in-linux-mint-16.html) is very simple and should get you going with getting Pantheon to work on Mint. But if stability is your main concern, you should just use elementary if you want Pantheon.

if you want to do REAL work, then use a major distro with simple but stable UI.

If you are using Elementary OS, you may ended wasting more of your time literally using the OS itself by figuring out missing stuff, trying not to break the already fragile GUI, or even compiling supposedly unnecessary things (and get rekt solving dependencies).
hardcore Linux promoter always bait potential users with nice screenshot. But they don't tell you the horror behind it. <--prove me wrong tongue.gif

Look for the giants like Fedora, openSUSE, or Mint, preferably with Gnome GUI or its derivatives. (I found there are too many distractions with KDE. Its okay if you don't mind some clutters).
Doing everyday activities would be more awesome with latest and greatest stuff, so you may want to look for constantly updated rolling release distro like openSUSE Tumbleweed or Arch, ..well, if you are okay with updates knocking your door on daily basis though.

Disclaimer:
This is just my personal experience and opinion. eOS gives me headache on my hardware and usage pattern, but not others. so YMMV.
Im currently using Gnome on openSUSE Tumbleweed on desktop (and 13.1 on servers) , but the real reason I like openSUSE is for its management toolset that I think is better than other distro.
