Why is 90% of ricing I see some WM or minimal desktop?

Where's all the fun of some insane 3D desktop or Win XP ricing?

>inb4 it's impratical

I use i3-gaps, urxvt, ect, ect, yadda yadda. It's nothing you've never seen before. It all looks the same. Where's the truly original stuff?

Minimal ricing requires little effort, that's why there are tons of screenshots of tilers with some taskbar from github. In order to rice at next level more effort is required. Developing custom themes is not easy when you have to do same shit for 10 different GUI frameworks and even then things look like shit and broken. Gnome/GTK devs are to be blamed for this: Oy Vey your GTK+ 3.16 theme is not compatiple with GTK+ 3.20, just rewrite it goy, we changed shit again, because we have nothing better to do. This happens every 6 months, so your theme is basically worthless then if you update shit. What you're left with is default Adwaita mobile phone theme that looks like shit. The best course of action is probably to abandon everything that uses GTK, if you want to rice.

>3D desktop

What do you mean?

>>663

Pretty much bang on. It's pretty easy to change the wallpaper, terminal colours, font and a bar, open a few terminals and maybe a picture and take a screenshot. It's hard to make everything like GTKs, icon sets and other stuff to match.

real rice coming through


 No.689

why over-rice your desktop when you could be browsing content with some app. transitions are LITERARLLY retarded for anything but presentation. At the "end of the day" eye candy (like desktop cube, wobbly windows, even fading..etc) ends up being time consuming and repetitive while minimal+functional turns out to be as pretty as it needs to be. Dont forget, you're interested in what a window contains, not anything inbetween (unless it is functional like tabs, for example)

those aren't really 3D desktops, they just use 3Dish graphics in the transitions. imagine if instead your GUI was a small 3D world that is a nice apartment with all the trappings: bedrooms, bathrooms, a home-office, any other room you might like. ebooks that look like physical books on physical bookshelves or strewn about the coffee table of your living room, email in physical-like envelopes, where unread mail is in a sealed envelope, and read mail is in a torn open envelope, documents in those hanging folders in physical-like drawers with physical-like locks and physical-like keys (though requiring very real passwords to decrypt). think of what a nice looking 3D GUI would look like, use you imagination. maybe someone will have the ability to create it, a sufficiently powerful computer to run it, and the fancy to want it.
