Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

perhaps if you used an OS that made your life a little easier, and took some of the drudgery out of your day, you'd have time for editing your spelling and grammer errors.

Moust peepol start eech sentance with a capitol lettur.

Few peepol seam to nou how to use kommas correctlie.

Missspelling grammar in a sentance about improving it is pryesless!

I'd rather say that not everyone was born in a country, that make any use of english, so I think that the typos and grammar errors in my posts aren't something weird.
I also think, that native english speakers should focus on themselves - most of them don't know how to use their own language and that is weird.

I was responding to a poster, who in defense of his hatred of GUIs, automation and lack of annoyances that newer OSs and Desktop environments have, said he'd rather spend his time doing all that stuff manually, then had the nerve to complain he didn't have the time to check his spelling.

I personally couldn't care less about my spelling. Try reading the preceding posts instead of just responding when you have no idea what the topic is.
