I would like to thank the people at SouthEast LinuxFest for allowing me to
speak about "How to Train Your Users". It was a last minute addition to
replace my talk on "How to Fork Fedora for Fun and Profit" since I ran out
of Fun and Profit in getting that ready. I would also like to thank the
people who sat through my presentation. It was the first one I have given
in years and really need to work on it. I do apologize for not bringing a
true User Attention Reset Tool, but after being told by several people that
many staff were packing ... bringing a knife to a gun fight was ill-advised
So with my work done with the Fedora Board, I have decided to spend more
time on things I can fix (technical things) versus those I can not (human
interactions). One of those things, was to use more of the Rawhide release
because if I can earn LWN.net weekly quotes of the week, I should endure
the pain that Jonathan Corbet goes through every day. Hopefully it will
also get F16 to be better.
Go for a walk, come back and reboot the system the old fashioned
way. System reboots into plymouth and stops halfway through the building
the icon. Oook gets out hammer.. and boots system into rescue mode again.
(still trying to get rawhide running)
So there you have it, if there's a reason for ditching MeeGo, it's certainly not a technical one, and most likely not a good one either. I hope the people out there like what we did with the Nokia N9 and ask the though question "Why exactly did you leave MeeGo, again?", specially when there are no signs of any Windows Phone device.
