Now look at that.
Ya ya, ok, I know. That desktop wallpaper … please don’t mock me too hard, ladies. At least my computer sports a new wallpaper every couple days, and most of them more exciting than this. Can you say the same about your lame machines? Huh?
See, I thought so. So better shut up now … and look at what’s important, what I really wanted to show y’all. See that little thumbnail open above the panel?
Mhm, appears since last week or so. Actually since Mate was updated to version 1.24 it happens every time when I mouse over one of the opened programs in the panel. And it fukn annoys the hell out of me. Prolly a new trick by the Mate devs … to make our lives more comfy, modern, rich, posh, diamond studded …
I fukn hate that shit! Sometimes it hides stuff below it that I really wanted to look at, like texts or so. Not some shitty thumbnail of a software. I’m not a fukn flakey millenial, I know pretty exactly what’s going on with my computer, I’m an adult and responsible person, ffs!
I fukn lurve the Mate desktop environment! Love its simplistic oldfashioned look and feel and its many functions. It’s my absolute favourite desktop that I prefer over all the others. No KDE/Plasma, no Xfce, no Cinnamon, nothing comes even close. But this new “function” doesn’t bring anything new and exciting to the table, it’s just a waste of resources with no enhanced helpful help. It’s just a shiny gimmick and disturbs my workflow. If I wanted my desktop to be all hyperactive, flashy and shiny, gimmicky and geared towards the hateful ADHD crowd I wouldn’t use Mate in the first place now, would I?
I couldn’t find a way to get rid of that shit, so please Mate guys, make it go away!!!
Oooh, see now what I mean?
Now that thumbnail made a chunk of my post invisible. 😦
Fuk dat! 😮
Before you ask, yes, it’s the same shit when I place the panel at the top of the screen:
… I’m developing a migraine from that shit! 😐
Any of you dear readers more cleverer than I? Yes, probably all of you; but are you better with Mate stuff than your chief editrix? Then fuxn help me!!!
