    Enough of the straight-bashing hate speech! Brendan Eich is a good man; Mozilla made an egregious tactical error when they let him go.

    The running definition of "old man" is usually the age of your dad. So of Linus is an old man, my guess is that you must be somewhere between 14 and 22.

    I really think Perl developers need to do something like this -- just admit that they bit off too much and take another run at it.

    Congratulations to Pat and Slackware.

    Was ist Weissbier Hell?

    Software is non-corporeal; it does not live or die, neither does it "deserve" anything (or not). You are allowing your emotions to impinge upon your rational judgement.

    Yes, it worked fine for me (this was two or three years ago, with Scientific Linux), but getting all the codecs that I wanted installed was a hassle.

    Well, maybe, but I think it's too early to tell. If only a few people strongly object to the udev-systemd lock-in, then they will probably move to one of the BSDs and the furor will subside. If...

    The screenshots on the lxqt.org front page appear to be using kwin, so that's probably right.

    The FAQ mentions that the Lumina panel will eventually contain a task list and system tray, so the Fluxbox panel could be disabled. Or you could probably use a different WM.

    More careful analysis will reveal that it looks a lot like Fluxbox. :)

    I don't understand why there are so many programmers with this particular totalitarian streak. I see it quite often. You don't like it, so it should cease to exist?

    This mindset seems to be...

    Or... why install Ubuntu when you can just install Linux Mint?

    Yeah, I was wondering that too. Wallpaper, icons, and window manager decorations seem to be the only differences. And maybe some of the default apps.

    I've had this aversion to cyan and magenta ever since.

    Wayland or X11? If Wayland, then that's great news.



    This contradicts what you said in the first sentence: "...apps have no way to steal or even request the focus."

    If an app requests the...
  17. You're right, the compositor (or window manager,...

    You're right, the compositor (or window manager, in non-compositing systems) should assign focus based on user input (alone), but X11 and most other windowing systems got this wrong and allow...

    The fact that it *allows* client-side decorations is harm enough.



    The compositor should assign focus based on direct user input only, not to some other app the compositor "wants" to assign it...

    I'd rather wait and see if it is better than X11 in actual use. Some aspects of the design -- client-side decorations, for example -- lead me to believe that it actually might be worse than X11.
