View Full Version : Credit where credit is due! In praise of the Linux desktops

April 21st, 2009, 11:51 PM
A word of appreciation for all those contributors who have dedicated their time and enthusiasm to producing the KDE, Gnome, Fluxbox and XFCE desktops. Each has its stronger and weaker points, depending on the expectations and needs of the end user.

To say that something "sucks" dismissing the hard work of all those committed contibutors in such an offhand and loutish manner shows a lack of respect for the work of others.

"sucks", "rocks" and "awesome" are really hollow and annoying expressions which do little to express a real opinion.

I shall continue to enjoy what Linux has to offer and am grateful for all the effort put into it.

Thanks a lot.
