    You can do that.
    Don't you think Linux's Dark mode just works spot-on and looks beautiful,sleek and much modern?
    I like to use Linux much more than Win 10.

    Yes, it's great looking. I haven't found a way to make all of the windows transparent like the panel, menu and terminal yet. That would look even better. I also like using it more than Windows 10. The more I use Linux and the more I learn to use it, the more I hate Windows 10. I like it almost as much as Windows 7 now.

    But, I really HATE Thunderbird email client. I discovered Geary for email and find it a LOT MORE aesthetically tolerable. It has somewhat less configurable functionality, but at least it's not tacky-looking like Thunderbird.

    Those transparency effects are performance hogs.
    I use Thunderbird because its minimalistic and works on cross platforms.

    It's easy enough to turn stuff off if you need more performance to complete a certain task. I've got more than enough horsepower to do anything and everything, and benching on Linux is pointless.

    Thunderbird has lots of features, but I just can't stand looking at it. It makes me angry for some reason. Don't ask me why, I don't know... it just does. It always has, going all the way back to when it was first released many years ago. Something about the UI is disgusting to me, like Edge, Opera and Vivaldi browsers, and to a somewhat lesser extent, Firefox. When you get pissed off just looking at it, then it's hard to care how well it works.

    I just took a look at Deepin last night. I know a lot of people are scared of it due to the team being Chinese, but the window manager is a work of art. I really like it.

    You can use the Deepin DE on other distros, I just decided to try out the whole distro. What I really love about it so far is I do need some scaling for my panel, native is just a tad too small. Deepin's hidpi scaling is the best I've seen so far in Linux. Chrome and Firefox still look amazing, unlike the GNOME scaling hack or KDE's horrendous scaling.

    There is a large amount of Asian centric apps in the Deepin Store, as well as mostly Chinese reviews and commenters. But the distro is really well done. The one thing I don't like is there are a lot of packages in there that are woefully out of date. Adding your own repos to apt is probably a good idea. I might try Arch+Deepin sometime soon to see how that goes.

    I've been doing a lot of distro hopping lately.

    Just a quick update, apparently Arch + Deepin isn't in a great state right now, but it looks like they are geting close to hopefully coming up with a solution. https://github.com/linuxdeepin/developer-center/issues/1093

    I'll stop commenting on it as this is supposed to be an nVidia driver revision thread. :)

    Here (2080) the 430.xx driver we have seen till today are very stable for gaming but not good for overclocking. Maybe good for user to hold higher clocks, but power draw and scores are lower at same clocks compared to 425.xx based ones.

    Nvidia should hire you for fixing there mess.... :rolleyes:

    https://www.techradar.com/amp/news/nvidias-new-geforce-drivers-are-playing-havoc-with-some-cpus

    "Nvidia’s latest graphics drivers made plenty of introductions – most notably support for GeForce GTX 16-Series laptops (and the new GTX 1650 desktop card) – but it seems that version 430.39 has also brought with it a rather nasty bug which spikes processor usage under Windows.

    A number of users have reported seeing their CPU usage bump up by around 10% to 20%, even when the PC is idling and no game (or indeed anything else) is running."

    Just saying.... :rolleyes:
