Thumbs up Got something good to say? ...

... Then this is the place for it.

As we all know, part of the reason that developers don't lurk around forums is not only the herculean effort required to separate the content from the confusion, but the general tendency of folks to want to gripe long before they think to thank.

So ... let's try to help change that.

If you've got something good to say, a positive comment, or a courteous thank you to offer, please do it here.




That being said, the other ground rule is, leave the complaints elsewhere. If you haven't got something good to say, don't post here. There are places provided for that sort of thing, too. So they don't need to be here.


Alrighty then. Let us watch the flowers fall where they may!

Re: Got something good to say? ...

Most of my thoughts and energy goes to my kids and other projects, like bbqing

I am grateful for Fedora. And a big THANKS for all the hard work put in, so guys like me can have a system that's solid smooth. My F18 notebook is my daily driver, it keeps me - my family - my projects organized.

Whether I am jamming to a shuffle mix on Rhythmbox - while I work on peppers in the kitchen, or keeping all the kids' events straight, or working on graphics with GIMP and Scribus, or any number of projects kept organized using Fedora...

A Big THANK You, from an on-the-go Dad

Re: Got something good to say? ...

Aaaahhh .... Yeah. That reminds me of the "other" rule.

You're not allowed to say anything good about Gnome 3.


Ever.

EDIT: (For newcomers or the un-initiated, I'm just poking fun at Dave here. Positive comments about Gnome 3 are actually quite welcome, and encouraged.)

Too long. Short form = Gnombie! And don't they actually lurch and totter more than walk? <....>


That being said, I run into the same sort of problem on Windows®. I put my mouse in an open area of the screen, give the wheel a quick flick ... <....>

... <....>

... and nothing happens. No adjacent workspace slides in. <....> So I resign myself to doing it the hard way, <....> and ...

...

... Aw, DANG! This is Windows®! No workspaces! <....>




Usually right after that, I start hunting a liveCD, external drive to boot ... or a different computer. <....>

The quick answer is to get used to the hotkey not the hot corner. :-)

The Windows key works on both!

I would agree except that fedup was easier. :-)
I wen from Fedora 18 to Fedora 19 in one command (fedup --network 19).

Re: Got something good to say? ...

What is this Gnome thing that people keep referring to? Isn't a Gnome those weird little statues that haunt peoples yards? Man, those things are really creepy! They seem to move on their own and seem to be looking right at you no matter where you move to!

Dan-s, I did not mention the sunshine-rainbow-unicorn joy that is Gnome 3, for some still resists it's magical comfort

And I do actually have a gnome, with lantern, watching my bbq's in the back yard

Re: Got something good to say? ...

Mr Clausen of Gnome development deserves an applause. Being a software developer myself, I understand the tremendous effort that he put in to insure quality Gnome functioning. He has done a most impressive job.

He is the developer, and is responsible for its implementation. I do not believe he is responsible for the design, per-sae.

I still prefer the Gnome of Fedora 18 to the versions of Fedora19 and soon to be version 20.

Wayland is making great strides at functionality, performance and ease of use for development. Gnome is on Wayland and that is the group that collectively needs a round of applause too.

Last summer, my pair of gnomes appeared. It was black, with white stripes, and when the gnomes walked, they waddled.

The dog attacked one of them once, now the dog knows better than to attack gnomes.

Re: Got something good to say? ...

From someone who is beginning to get his feet wet with development, I must say that all work that you guys do with documenting, packaging, maintaining, testing and developing is appreciated. While I may not agree with all the decisions that you make, I am thankful for the fact that you are there to help and aid with the software many of us take for granted. Thank you.
