So, you see nominally Regular People complain and bitch and moan about the software you write. You know, the regular, everyday people with blogs and personal domain names and accounts in bug reporting systems, and knowledge of different window managers, and knowledge of the difference between zsh and bash. Regular people.
Nice application of sarcasm there, but sadly completely wasted. As long as we are talking about Linux desktop users — yes. These are the regular people. Everyone else has given up on the Linux desktop long ago, given any choice.
(Or that's what I see when I look around me, anyway. I'm sure there'll be someone quick to correct me with a heartwarming story about how their spouse/children/elderly parents are Linux desktop users — well, that is on your conscience and yours alone. I'm sure you are postponing your supportees' Gnome 3 transition as far as you can, folks, right? Right?)
