Comment Re:How do you ban someone from passing on this cos (Score 2, Insightful) 442

It's bullshit. Of course they can't prevent it. They can prohibit passing on the tax as an enumerated line item, and maybe make that stick,but there's no way in hell they can stop uber from just raising its rates by ... gee ... just HAPPENS to be the same amount as the tax.

They do this with gas stations. Gas stations are prohibited from enumerating on their signage the taxes which the corrupt statist pigs are saddling you with.

You need to go get some "petrol", visit the "chemist", check under the "bonnet", and make sure the spare tire under the "boot" has air. I'll be getting some gas, going to the drugstore, checking under the hood, and making sure there is air in the spare tire under the trunk, like any normal guy. And remember, there is no "a" in "clerk". Any other grotesque expressions and pronunciations I should know?

Not at all. No offense taken or intended. It is Yakuake that offends me, but like you say, no harm in catering to different tastes. I don't happen to like apps that blatantly break with standard practice. As for "showing up and going away at a keypress", EVERY app does that by merely clicking its button in the task bar.

Yes, I got the (non discoverable) right-click context menu in Yakuake, but where is the normal menu that belongs under the title bar with File, Edit, View, Bookmarks, Settings, and Help? Where are the Maximize, Minimize, and Restore buttons? How do you resize the thing or move it on the desktop? Oh yeah, I just noticed the crappy chrome style triple-bar menu icon in the LOWER RIGHT(!) of the frame. It shouldn't mystify anyone when apps that completely disregard standards, to absolutely no purpose, are not well-received.

Nothing comes close to Konsole. Yakuake is utter crap. It's not even in the same league as Konsole. What's up with that drop-down window crap? Where the hell is the menu bar? An app that doesn't show up in the task bar? It's like before christ.
