Well... it seems a few here have lived in the world of the real communist propaganda.... what i can say is that it was really far far behind today's "democratic" one in terms of maturity ...
The truth is that when money talks, conscious is always asleep... :S
It seems to me that in the near feature we will find a very bad dictator even on Mars... and we will go there to help the innocent and oppressed Martians to get rid of him.... I wonder what will be the real deal then...

Well i would rather say that GNOME is slowly taking the wrong road that KDE is going on...
The main reason i started using *nix long long ago was that it gave me the freedom to choose/change/tweak every single thing i wanted to - GUI, options etc...
The moment KDE4 was ou,t i hated it because it was totally disappointing in terms of bugs, functionality, look... The fact is that it still has these shortcomings, though the KDE Devs try to convince us it is great... Well... they have a great problem... They do not listen to their end-users' ideas and they do not care if the features they introduce are functional and are liked by the users...
What i see in GNOME3 is almost the same... And well, the lack of ability to tweak things in GNOME2 (compared to KDE3 of course) was annoying, but at least there were some tweak abilities.... Obviously in the "next generation" GNOME, tweaking will be even worse... Then why not go back to a simple terminal and the command line huh? :)
Obviously when GNOME3 is out i will change to XFCE for example... the same way i changed to GNOME2 when KDE4 was out....
Too bad for GNOME... Anyway...

Yah ... and the funniest part of this "study" is the way they have assessed the results :)
"Participants were asked to make eight choices; each was between receiving a small, but immediate, reward and a larger, but delayed, reward. For example, they could choose to receive either $16 tomorrow or $30 in 35 days."
And here comes the problem in every study: choosing the right values/ways for assessment. I couldn't find what were the other seven choices the participants had to choose from, but this one OBVIOUSLY is a faulty one... Because the fact that you choose to get $16 tomorrow, doesn't mean that this decision is a bad one or an uncontrolled one... does it?

Anyway we should always be careful when trying to analyse the results of any study.... :)

Well that is too late I think... Something like using an umbrella after the rain has stopped... :)

I already have a very bad experience with a couple of laptops with integrated old ATI cards which linux support was dropped by ATI 2 years after they were produced?!...

So i have learned my lesson very well and it is - NEVER buy anything even closely related to ATI (though it is now AMD :) )...

No one should make one and the same mistake again, shouldn't he?

Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.

Working...
