Brand New You're Retro - The Regolith Desktop Environment
Desktop Linux has been around for decades, and has provided fertile ground for experimentation and evolution of the primary interfaces people use to interact with their PCs. One such form that is relatively lesser known is tiling window management. In this style users need not manage windows that stack upon and occlude one another. Rather, windows are each allotted a region of the screen and by default all windows are visible. Side-stepping the mouse-driven workflows of more prevalent desktops, tiling interfaces provide for simpler and faster keyboard-driven interaction. The learning curve can be steep at first, but the productivity gains to be had are worth the work. In this talk, we will dive into this tiling window approach, how it differs from more common interfaces by demonstrating the Regolith Desktop 2.0.
