Well that conversation ended quickly. So quickly in fact, that I believe I see rubber left from the abrupt skid marks of harsh braking. Either facts are being examined and gathered for presentation or our friend decided the payoff would not be worth the effort. You can bet there will be fingers pointing your way with snitching sounds aplenty.
Good work fellas. My name is Ken Starks aka helios (blog.lobby4linux.com)
As many read my blog and have visited our website, it is known that i am a Manic advocate of PCLinuxOS. However, the DevTeam, and they are a SUPERB DevTeam, have stood firm on PCLOS being a KDE-Centric distro. There have been occasional attempts to "Gnome-ize" PCLOS, but the projects have disappeared into the fog, never to emerge. Emerge...Wait, that's Gentoo.
Sorry, lousy pun. One must have a legacy of some sort I suppose.
This distro is top notch and I am installing it tonight. It will be my prime mover for a 30 day period. I have had several affairs with Gnome and as of yet, she has been good to me, gives me things I want, and hasn't made a trip to the local Medical Clinic necessary as of yet. I specifically want to be able to include certain kde libs in my Gnome environment so as to utilize a few kde tools. One such tool is known as KPF or public file server. I do not know if it possible to run this simple little file sharing server in Gnome, but it is a wonderful tool and one I will need to use.
As well, I am more than disappointed in the kde desktop search functions and kick it to the curb with every new install. I much prefer the gnome search tool and in conjunction, Beagle. This is a wonderful program and it is a shame the developers of KAT gave up on the kde project that would have been Beagle's equal.
Anyway, again I offer my sincere thanks for your work on this distro, and trust me...I find absolutely no problems with "Dirty" sheep amonst the "Clean".
Your analogy about driving your car to work was spot on, and extremely hard to argue with. FOSS extremists find it difficult to counter.
See ya around.
