    I'm not being aggressive and hostile to other people (at least not to those that haven't been agressive or hostile to me before...), but you are making a point and you're partially right.

    I could become a designer for Gnome (that's exactly what you're asking for, believe it or not), but I am just a user who believes this is one big design flaw in Gnome. I don't expect Gnome designers to just follow every suggestion or request, but I do believe users must expose their complaints so developers get to know what users are demanding and why.

    I certainly do expect Mark Shuttleworth reads these forums looking for users' demands.

    (I'm assuming Gnome and Ubuntu are being done for others and they're not following a "scratch your own itch" model, but I might be wrong.)

    They don't care, unless you praise them... it's not like they're trying to get your cash.

    They do care I hope, and they certainly should. Mark Shuttleworth is indeed trying to get my cash.

    Are you sure it doesn't? My keyring contains my email account information and claims it was put there by evolution.
