I finally replaced my vintage 2008 ThinkPad X200s, after months of agonising over which of keyboard, form factor, hidpi display, and software freedom to compromise on. Just in the nick of time, Dell released a developer edition of their widely-lauded XPS 13, which is spot on: same comfortable form factor (with 2015-era thin-ness); huge display with minimal bezel; conservative, usable keyboard layout; supplied and supported with free software; and the Sputnik team are very amiable on Twitter. I’m very happy with it.
I was less happy with how ludicrous Bustle looked on it, with its total ignorance of hidpi scaling and retro Gtk+ 2 stylings. I finally found the spare evening I mentioned 18 months ago and freshened it up to not let the amazing screen down.
Source tarball and x86-64 binary available from the usual place.
The freedesktop.org git repository is temporarily out-of-date due to some poorly-synchronised GPG and SSH key migrations, so for now it’s at GitHub.
(Hey, actual Bustle users! How do you feel about it as a piece of software? I’d be interested to hear.)
