You say , "... the behaviour should be correct the first time..." and this is wrong. The behaviour should be *selectable* by the user. That's why folks are asking for checkboxes and configuration dialogs. The behaviour cannot possibly be "correct" because it is a preference and what I prefer may not be what you prefer.

I realize that the Gnome folks really believe there is only one correct way for the desktop to look and behave, but they are wrong.

I've seen the Beta and don't like it. I've seen several comments saying there are other places to go for tech news/discussions. What are these other sites?

I've not seen a tech news site with lively discussions and it's the discussions I'm interested in. I've learned more from the discussions here on (old) Slashdot than the stories.

What are some tech news/discussion websites I should check out?

I remember when SuSE was one of the only distros, perhaps the only one, which used reiserfs as the default filesystem. No, there's no punchline. This was when you could buy it in a box (including the little chamelon pin) off the shelf at CompUSA. SuSE has always had a fascination with new filesystems.

FORTRAN is for pipe stress freaks and crystallography weenies.
