Yeah, i agree.
I might have been a bit offensive on this one... i should watch that.
But i just thought this was a lot of mess for not so much.
i promote mint everywhere and am linux savvy person.
i also have ubuntu hardy beta installed (for testing purposes), but am looking forward to mint 5
i rarely give ubuntu CDs to people, i give them mint CDs.
The thing here is i was so piss off by the search bar thing. I downloaded a few updates and BAM, my search bar was gone and replaced (exactly when unwanted Adware/malware installs in your pc).
No notification or anything.... (i read the update info and there was non)It's like when adware/spyware gets installed in your PC
. Thats why i left windows and came to linux. Thats why adware/spyware removers are so popular.never do
something like this without warning you first or giving you the option to use your old search bar (your old settings)
i do support mint and i do use their search bar as much as i can NOW. But thats because i love and support linux, specially Ubuntu and the linuxmint proyect.
People use Google primarily because of those features that are missing in googlemint
, if not i would use a simple search engine like yahoo search, etc. I sacrifice myself to work using googlemint
, but i do it consciously now
. I need the google features for my work, not because i play around.another person would not tolerate this annoying thing and either leave mint right away or go back to windows.
I seen some leave because of even smaller things. Yea, thats how serious can be when you affect the user work experience.am just giving here good solid advice to Clem
. In the Linux world you can't just impose things to the user. You need to offer them conscious options. Let them choose and you will be rewarded.the only thing he needs to do is offer the normal one at the bottom of the list nothing else, that way a person can switch back and forward and the experience would be so less annoying. Thats so hard to do?
you need to adapt to the user, not the user adapting to whatever you want...
