The truth arrives

Some of these comments are pretty funny..."why don't they just join Gnome or KDE"..."we already have enough desktops".

The funny part of this is when you advocate a "standard" desktop some of these people will be the first to throw a hissy fit.

So I guess when it's Gnome and KDE, it's all cool, but when these guys do something different (and this is very different down to the toolkit) it's not ok.

But when another random distro comes out that does nothing different, but has a new name and a new repository, then "choice" is good.

A bunch of hypocrites. Let's face some facts. Not having a "standard" which really means dominant desktop has hurt LotD, and since there isn't going to be one at least there are people being a little bit innovative - rather than YAD

A bunch of hypocrites? Please man, they don't speak for all of us. Perhaps these people don't like having any choices? Then that is their choice!

Thank you for pointing that out. Something definitely has to change in the minds of those in the mainstream Linux community. There is a LOT of room for improvement in our OS.
