why does kdx feel so comfy?
- never used it before. new
- it does not fit "modern" design. old, timeless
- the program is under 2mb. efficient, inspiring
- completely custom UI, however it feels familiar. works well
- still runs on modern computers, don't need to do anything tricky (except on
linux for i386)
- outside of any normal systems. fun
- not mobile. great for quarantine
- run your own server, local or in cloud on linux. easy
- no one is on it, 3 people max who i know personally. cosy
|KDX with a few windows open, along with an irssi session.
fav features, things i want to keep in my life elsewhere:
- cosy chat, text only
- user profile images, descriptions, custom colors
- community files, feel like this is missing elsewhere
- lots of lil windows. coming from tiling wm its surprising that i like it
- completely custom ui world, love it, lil icons, great scrollbars,
- "launch window" -- to open address book, user list, etc. feels right
there's a few, its not open source, but i am more interested in
experiencing the benefits.
what is KDX?
KDX was created by Haxial, by the creator of Hotline (which there is more info
about on the net nowadays). a bit like a BBS, it includes chat, shared files,
discussion groups, and some things i didn't try like voice chat and remote
computer control. you can find downloads online for windows, mac classic os,
mac os x, and linux (server, client, and tracker). it is no longer developed. server/client system, not peer to peer. there are still servers running,
if you'd like to join mine just let me know :)
