    Poll: Re: Anyone switch from K to Gnome? Why?

    gnome is just as configurable as kde, maybe a smidgin less...maybe

    The difference is in HOW you configure it. The million-monkey designed KDE control center or the simplified gnome control center...

  6. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    You dont feel that many other things in life are similar yet different and you manage those just fine?

    How did you ever get familiar with firefox? Was you eased thru the transition somehow? Was...
  7. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    and everyone else lives in that same world... My kids dont have cellphones. Do not know what facebook or myspace is. I often have to explain how to do anything on a computer beyond very basic usage -...
  8. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    Do you'll have problems when you switch cellphones? microwaves? alarm clocks? cars? Do you feel uncomfortable? Do you need to be eased into the transition? Isn't that part of what is cool about...
  9. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    uh my kids are 13 and 7 and have basic knowledge of how to operate a computer, they are not techno whiz kids or anything. At most they get one hour of game/funtime a day and they can choose the...
  10. Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you? -- Issues

    Seriously, people cannot turn their brains on/off so how could it be offensive? Thats like saying pull the bottle out of your ear - it is a funny way of calling attention to something.

    uh oh I am offended....now if my gimpy eyes could just find the report button

    someone said gimp and that is worse than saying people (in the general sense) should turn their brains on....oopps I...
  12. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    I am not insulting users who value familiarity. I am stating that I think users need to turn their brain on and realize that they can operate something that is similar even if it is not the exact...
  13. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    of course not...
    but I thought this thread was dealing with firefox 'easing' the transition which would imply that it is hard to use something that may be slightly different than what you are use...
  14. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    true...there probably are transition issues
    People know next to nothing about their windows system and expecting them to figure out anything more that that for linux is likely doomed.

    How many...
  15. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    transition from windows...isn't that a bit over dramatic. I mean, it isn't like 'blast from the past' or austin powers being warped into the 90s or anything. I mean, maybe a caveman could not...

    Right, it is pointless as it is. Whereas if people actually offered some support/justification for their preference it would be nice instead of just saying one is too...
  17. Poll: Re: Did having Firefox preinstalled matter to you?

    I would think if you can manage one browser you can manage any browser. I cant imagine people making a decision to use ubuntu based on the browser. I did get a giggle from the idea of that though......

    Well, they do add some back occasionally. You can always pop sawfish back under gnome if you miss sawfish that much.

    It is still way too difficult to convert windows users to linux. gimp is still way to superior than photoshop. I support free software very much and the Gimp has really impressed me. There has been...

    You like being asked a ton of questions. I would think a default action with a option to have it ask would be sensible. Personally I just want it to do something. If it doesnt do what I want then I...

    Poll: Re: Anyone switch from K to Gnome? Why?

    If that is the case then I am surprised they arent staying away from windows too. Unless the blind leading the blind inspires confidence. No actually they stay away because they dont care about...
