Some folks hated GNOME 2 for the same reason.
:-) But it evolved and got better.
It's because some of them believe that a computer is an extension of themselves and so they like to make the computer work to their workflow or whatever. So, GNOME 3 doesn't really do that you have to adopt to the workflow that it is optimized for. If you of that mindset then, yes, indeed it will be hard to get used to GNOME 3. That doesn't make GNOME 3 bad or anything, but that's why you get these comments. But I would say that there should be one projects that breaks the status quo and lead with new ideas instead of trying to conform to just technical FOSS people.
Democrats are notorious for election fraud? Oh man, you must have drank some of the Republican koolaid. In any case, I didn't say Democrats were trustworthy I said they were less corrupt. One doesn't mean the other.
I'm not a Democrat. I vote in my interest and voting Republican isn't it.
It's a bit cynical to have this world view. The corruption that you see here is nothing compared to some of the places I've been.
Just like these car makers probably won't like GNOME 3.
I call bullshit on "both sides do it". There is only one party here is going off the deep end in the past 10 years. Democrats are a lot easier to bullier than Republicans to do the right thing.
Let's not do both sides do it. Only one side here is the bad actor. When it comes to corruption, Dems are a lot more trustworthy than Republicans. You can generally consider Republicans as a bunch of clowns, and not to be taken seriously and the country will run fine. I mean, we are talking about the party who wants to default on our debts and is okay with that.
Republicans have never been in action been in support of free market or at least smart free market. This is one of their big lies.. Dems are generally for smart governance, that doesn't always mean big government.
Ugh, sorry for the terrible writing - basically I was saying that what looks foreign will become familiar over time as with anything else. The one difference with my Perl -> Python analogy is that I took the initiative to do that, and so I had an incentive. Much harder when the change is not something you initiated. Which is the heart of a lot of this debate.
yeah, it's nice. I don't work in IT anymore and moved into doing distro engineering (hence the systemd stuff). But I know I used to be irritated with the change, but the experience is somewhat similar to when I moved from Perl to Python. I knew I could do all this stuff in Perl but I had to force myself to use Python until it was second nature. In the end, it is similar and you know software evolves. If systemd guys listen and is able to evolve it, listening to systems administrator then things are going to look a lot better.
Join teh systemd list and ask. Just explore and see what can be done. In fact, you might find new or interesting solutions that might not have been possible before.
Nope, all kinds of Unix and Linux. I have never administrated a windows box in my life.
I shouldn't have to try anything. You shouldn't be doing too many unique business processes in the first place. the only thing we have different is a new runlevel that has some small number of services + network.
