In Pictures: 10 amazing Linux desktop environments you've probably never seen

One of the most amazing things about Linux is how versatile it is.

Ratpoison Ratpoison's goal is simple: kill the mouse. Because of this heavy reliance on keyboard commands for interacting with all aspects of the system, Ratpoison has a bit of a learning curve (though that is true of many of the Desktop Environments in this list).

Plus, you probably won't need to worry too much about setting up any security on your system, because most people won't even know how to open an application if they sit down at your computer.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
