    No bad, I skim most posts too.

    I'm not into digital cameras, and I gave my Droid smartphone to one of my son-in-laws, so for now, I have a regular cell phone with a great slide out QUERTY keyboard, but, a really, really crappy camera.

    I tried to take a pic of the windows borders, but the resolution is not good enough to pick them up clearly. Anyway, like I said, I'll keep the partition, and will continue to update it. If anything changes, I'll post an update here in this thread.

    Update:

    The rendering problem with the borders seems to be a ghost in the machine for my T400. Xubuntu 12.04 is not a problem on my T43, and Xubuntu 14.04 is not a problem on my X220. Oh well, such is life.

    Moving on...

    Re: From Xubuntu to Ubuntu testing

    Just a casual comment...

    I was looking at a bug report on Launchpad this morning, and I noticed an unusual number of "me too" posts after the bug had been confirmed. I would hope that people would realize that "piling on" to bug reports with those type of posts is considered poor etiquette, but, apparently not.

    I'm always busy doing other things, but, when I have the time to research something I've noticed on a development release, I always seem to be tail end Charlie. I don't have any exotic bits and pieces on or in my computers, so, I have found, that when I do see a bug, by the time I look at it, many times it's been kicked to death on Launchpad.

    Personally, if I see that the bug has been confirmed, I just move on, and I would hope others would adopt this method of bug hunting. Reading the stickies at the top of this forum, which provide some guidance on what, when, why, where, and how, of all things testing related, would be most helpful for people wanting to be involved with the testing process. Searching out other articles, and wiki entries, would be helpful too.

    If I run into a bug report that affects me, I usually just click the affects me too link, then if I want to add a comment I do that too. I also subscribe to bugs that affects my system, so that I can keep an eye on what is happening as far as the bug is concerned.

    Those are good ideas, thanks for posting.

    I downloaded and installed the 2/4 Xubuntu 14.04 daily, to check if there were still problems with the borders on my T400. There are, so I'll try again closer to release.

    Re: From Xubuntu to Ubuntu testing

    According to the following Xubuntu blog post, threads/posts like these are unappreciated, so, I'm marking this thread "solved".

    While testing the developer versions in any way possible is a great idea, there isn’t much benefit in messages telling us Xubuntu works on machine X, or there were no problems with upgrading machine Y.

    I'd not post in them if they weren't. The blog post is a general push to try and get reports of bugs is all.

    Nice of you to say Elfy, but, this thread is done. Good luck with the balance of your dev cycle.

    I lied.

    For anyone that was following this thread, with a similar rendering issue, I downloaded yesterday's daily of Xubuntu 14.04, and the odd looking borders are finally gone (an ongoing problem since 13.04).
