locked Re: TOR Browser Accessibility with NVDA
I have twiddled round with linux a little but know little in commands.
Right now, we are limited to a certain amount of desktops.
xfce, lxde and lxqt are usable but I have never got them to work.
I almost got ciniman to work but not properly.
Unity does work as does gnome 2 classic and gnome shell.
The biggest issue right now is that anything above gnome2 is a no go.
Its not helped that some in the community are no goes for support and don't want even suggestions.
There are a lot of devs that don't want help because they know best so it never improves.
For myself, having used vmware machines, while I was able to blunder about, because of what I do generally and because of what I own, I can't see myself ever switching to linux full time, unless I get a bigger desk or bigger room to run a dedicated box with linux.
Now I do have 1 such box that has win7 on it right now and could be used.
Sadly I'd need to either use dvds or cds with it and I can't justify leaving it active all the time and in position.
Since vmware workstation 16 completely stuffed up windows keyboard on install requiring a system restore and almost a complete reformat and since to be honest I only blundered about the last year I have decided not only to not renew my vmware licence but to go back on using vmware at all on my primary system.
To top it all off, with it gone performance has gone up on the system and so I will not put it back on.
Maybe after my next reformat I may reconcidder it but who am I kidding here.
I have blundered about in all there is to see as a demo.
Back in university I doodled with linux but never really got into it as an actual os only as a toy.
I think if I try again, I will be using a real pc or a pi and if I do that I need to pick and stick with 1 distribution.
If I have to choose after a lot of fiddling, mint will probably be it though I like the arch/mandriva concept of roling release.
I technically do have room for a desktop and I guess I could run linux on this but I probably won't.
After vmware doing what it did to my system I have gone off the idea of trying to fiddle with virtual machine software.
I'd like to try virtual box or maybe a portable virtual machine software which does not interact with and potentially mess up windows on my primary system like vmware did.
I may have not installed or updated an enhanced keyboard driver but its a checkbox I didn't click and it made all the difference.
Even though my system supports it the amount of performance I got back from removing it has convinced me otherwise.
At any rate I don't have the room on my data drives to run a virtual so I'd need a dedicated customised system with the right software.
Either that or a way to multiboot a system with multiple drives to handle things.
