XPde is a complete desktop environment for Linux on x86
XPde is a complete desktop environment for Linux on x86. It tries to make easier for Windows XP users to use a Linux box.
Nothing more, no clipboard compatibility between Gtk and Qt applications, no emulation of Windows applications, no unification on the widgets of X applications, just a desktop environment.
What's New in This Release:
The desktop now fully uses PNG+Alpha channel, so you can use the icons of your choice anywhere
The icon theme has been updated to the latest crystal svg, but not all icons are included, just the needed ones
The used font now is Bitstream vera, which looks very similar to tahoma
Now, I'm using QTheme from Andreas Hausladen: http://mitglied.lycos.de/AndreasHausladen/Delphi/Kylix/CLXPatches/unitcomp.html#QThemed
Still some work to do on this field.
The desktop now is a XPShellListView control, that means that is based on the XPListView control will be used to build the explorer and that uses the XPDirectoryMonitor, a component that maintain an update list of files from a directory and it gets notified about changes without polling or using FAM
The desktop now repaints significantly faster, I have spent most of the time optimizing the code to make it work faster in lower resources machines
The taskbar is also completely new, is built using bitmaps, as you can see in the shot and can be themed very easily
The window manager is mostly new, it also allows you to use themes, including rounded window frames.
