    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

    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. <....>

    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!

    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.

    Shout out to all the package maintainers. Yes the pkg developers deserve praise, and the core packages are indispensable, but there are a LOT ppl who've adopted packages and make it possible for the rest of us to just 'yum install ...' and be done with it.

    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? ...

    I have something good to say. Thank you to all of the Linux developers for all of your hard work and dedication. We tend to take same for granted, but we do appreciate it.

    I stumbled upon Linux over 10 years ago and have never looked back. I can honestly say that I've had a lot of fun (and a lot of frustration) playing around with many different Linux distributions over the years. If it weren't for you I'd still be lost in the downward spiral that is that other major OS. That would be depressing.


    So .... Thank you!
