:face_palm: I know. Pantheon is the worst DE of all time and the retarded devs at elementary OS had a good idea but fucked everything up.

literally the only DE that is more stable than pantheon is Xfce. Stop spreading FUD.

so what was the point of you posting that?

Just configure touchegg and your onscreen keyboard right and use whatever DE you prefer but tweaked to have big buttons. I'd like to suggest LXQT, but that's still nowhere near stable. Perhaps XFCE after tweaking?

GNOME and KDE implement touch a lot better than touchegg

WHAT IS WRONG WITH IT ?
>>
>>68025023
everything basically
>>
>>68025030
As a former Windows user Solus works best boots up fast, best software center (yes it might not be large but its tested and works)

also Budgie looks great, very comfy
IMO a rare linux distro that can be a daily driver
>>
>>68016598
>t. poser teenager with anxiety
So the only reason you use a Mac is because it's expensive? Holy fucktard.
>>
>>68025058
Yeah, Solus is great in that regard, but eopkg is a piece of shit, they should have went with APT or pacman instead.
>>
>>68025129
why do you say eopkg is bad?
you're saying eopkg is bad and recommending apt, either you have no idea what you're talking about or eopkg is completely unusable and that hasnt been my experience with it

>Did you think this thread was about pantheon you daft fuck?
well, considering I was specifically talking about pantheon and I posted an image of pantheon.. yeah, that crazy Idea that I was making a pantheon thread crossed my mind.

>>68024725
it looks a lot like gnome3 but it's not really "code" based on it. It was actually built from scratch with a minimal gnome3 software compatibility thrown in there at the end. You inmediately notice this when using it because unlike gnome it doesn't shit the bed every 10 minutes.
