I'm sorry but considering users of your tool ass**** is not something I consider to be good user development
again with the reading comprehension skills.
I said that I consider whoever self-identifies as a power user — i.e. says it in all seriousness about him or herself — an ass****. I have almost two decades of experience in people doing exactly that and revealing themselves as ass*****. hell, I used to do that when I was an angsty teenager, and I was that ass****. I moved on, though; not something that happens to everyone, apparently.
Maybe a luser, but not a ass****
aaand the instant you say something like this, it makes it so hard for me to take you seriously.
What I hate is that Gnome3 took away the desktop environment that I do use
yes, we came around to your house and office at night and removed everything from your machines. not only that, we removed the packages from every distribution, the tarballs from every server, and the source code from the various repositories.
we are mean ones, us Grinch^H^H^H^H^HNOME developers.
"we are placing gnome2 into maintenance mode, and will only do minor bug fixes here and there, but are not going to add any more features. We are focusing on a new desktop environment called Gnome-elite, and there is no guarantee that gnome2 will be compatible with Gonme-elite."
s/-elite/3/g. there, I Fixed That For You.
it's exactly what we said. for two years. if you weren't listening, sorry: short of coming around the house of every Linux user personally and handing you a note, I'm not sure of what should have been done.
Yes, I currently switched to Xfce
good for you. seriously: you're a user that can move across distro boundaries, or across environment boundaries, without much of a problem. you're a niche user, inside a niche market. personally, I don't find you so interesting that I have to design and write the software in my own spare time to please you (or the ones like you). now, since this is my own time, are you really feeling so entitled that you also need to vent to me about the fact that I don't consider you a target user?
