cman: I wasnt even alive during the MSDOS/CP/M standardization war. I was born in 83./Although I did use CP/M on a Commodore 128. Good times.
jonny_q: I thought Linux had switched the KDE a long time ago
aerojockey: AustinFakir: GNOME wanted to be Steve Jobs. They wanted to be so good they could ignore what users told them -- because they knew what users wanted better than the users did.Unfortunately, they nailed the "ignoring criticism and condescending to users as if they were small children" aspect of Steve Jobs but fell short on the "perfectionist visionary genius" part that made him tolerable.THIS./goes for pretty much any open source software package beginning with G, in fact
Fo Shiz: cman: DjangoStonereaver: zedster: Nadie_AZ: Wait, gnome is going away? I've been using gnome 2.x for many many years now. I switched from KDE 1.x, windowmaker and blackbox. Why? I dunno ...Is KDE 4.x really that good? Or is gnome done? And don't get me started with that unity sh*t.Gnome 3 is bad, like Vista GUI bad. Unity UI, the Ubuntu addition to Gnome 3 is like attending a Nickleback concert filled with incontinent people badMate, a 3rd party fork of Gnome 2 is pretty good and getting betterMATE is probably going to wither on the vine in favor of Cinnamon, also from the Linux Mint team. Basically, itsa fork of Gnome Shell/Gnome 3 that has the visual look of the older Gnome 2 environment.Personally, I prefer XFCE, and don't understand why Linus switched back to KDE.Personally I liked CP/M better than MSDOS, but MSDOS won out because of how much of an idiot Kildall was. Pretty much GNOME/XFCE/Uubuntu are acting like Gary KildallReally. What was it that you like about CP/M that was better than MSDOS?
