Debian April Screenshot by Alexander-GG Debian April Screenshot by Alexander-GG
During the last month I tried a lot of different distros. But, most of all I'm disappointed with an upcoming Ubuntu's Unity shell. By my opinion, Unity is the worst thing ever someone could do with GNOME2. I do not know how about you, but for me it has absolutely non-intuitive interface, is too buggy (and I'm not sure they will have a time before a final release to fix all bugs) and heavy as a Second World War's period tank. Pity!

I also have a mixed feelings about GNOME3. Maybe it's not completely ready yet or maybe I'm not used to it yet. Also, new non-proprietary drivers do not work well for me. Maybe they work for your video card. I do not know. Too many “maybe”s.

Well, now about this shot. This is not a LMDE as you may think because of colour-gamma. That's the Debian Squeeze with “classic” GNOME2 DE without any patches. Tried to give it some "retro" look, so, there's no dock, just classic top/bottom panels. Debian is really amazing, fast and pure!

OS – Debian Squeeze.
GTK2 theme and Metacity – Litestyle Suite (Mint version from a Watered-Down Range, also matches well deviantART's colour-scheme) by ~weakhead.
Icons – Faenza-Mint by john007.
CoverGloobus – included by default “45Controls” skin.
Background – that's White Flowers by ~xnhan00, but blurred and with some noise added. An original version goes fine too.
Conky – standard conky setup from the CrunchBang Linux. Just removed what I do not need.

Running applications – DeadBeef, CoverGloobus, conky and the “Star Wars” movie in a terminal.

In case of your interest, please, push the "Download" button, because it doesn't look sharp when it's auto-resized by DA.

Sorry for blurring my host-name and some specs.

Yes, 179 MB. On Arch Linux with Xfce it's even less, around - 120 MB. Thank you very much! :)

Thank you very much! Debian is great, but I use Arch now. If you decide to give Debian a try and like to use latest software and libraries install testing (Debian Wheezy) version and not the stable. :)
