"I believe humans get a lot done, not because we're smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee." --Flash Rosenberg
It used to be like a whiskey bar in a frontier town--Wild, Wild West. Now it is more like an abandoned church. You can look around, sit anywhere you want, but you still talk in quiet tones--because it is a church.

There's always https://openlinuxforums.org/ for those who miss the "old times"
I used to log in and comment or even help (if I had the answer) much more than lately. I don't log in most of the time, cause it took me about 1minute, eventhough Firefox remembered the password. I miss the old log in. I know that a minute is not a lot of time, but it just annoys me.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT A QUANTAL QUETZAL IS...BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE PRETZEL AND I LIKE PRETZEL
For those of that are complaining about logging in here, just be glad you don't work where I do, I have to enter my user name and password three times, just to check my email.
I think one of the reasons the Cafe is slower is that many of the regulars were run off by the previous administration, we have tried to lighten things up a bit, by not being so heavy handed, but I guess the message hasn't gotten out yet.
I am not sure where I saw the heading (most probably in G+ for a blog post by someone) and it basically came down to Ubuntu not being a success and so widely used only because of the technical things that was done to Linux to make it user friendly etc. but mostly because of the community that grew around it.
Is that community still as strong today as back then? It is all speculation, but the Cafe and Community serves as high a purpose as any of the technical areas of this forum. 2c given.
