Re: Cinnamon guide for F16 (replacement for gnomes-hell)

Your sig has an interesting history...
Quote:
"Anybody who tells me I can't use a program because it's not open source, go suck on rms. I'm not interested. 99% of that I run tends to be open source, but that's _my_ choice, dammit." -- Linus Torvalds, 2004.
And then later...

Quote:
Git development began after many Linux kernel developers chose to give up access to the proprietary BitKeeper system. (The copyright holder of BitKeeper, Larry McVoy, withdrew free use of the product after he claimed that Andrew Tridgell had reverse-engineered the BitKeeper protocols.)

Torvalds wanted a distributed system that he could use like BitKeeper, but none of the available free systems met his needs, particularly his performance needs. From an email he wrote on April 7, 2005.
So your signature is a bit misleading.

Appologies for the off topic...
