Extensive Xandros 2.0 Deluxe Review

Lord Kholdan Re:Probably The End of Xandros (126 comments)

Please back up this claim with even a little bit of evidence. Some of the *users* (especially the vocal group here on /.) exhibit that elitist attitude, but to paint the developers with the same brush is quite rude.

If the goal of the developers of Gnome and KDE was to make unix more difficult for users and developers, they are not doing a very good job.


If I had offended the small minority of developers that really do care about the vast masses of the unwashed, uneductated and disinterested users I apologise.

But I stand by the claim that untill program X easily doubleclick installs and does not require any sort of knowledge of bash, unix principles of configfiles to be run at full capacity it isn't really userfriendly, it is merely paying lip service to it and assuming that all serious users will and should learn the "good old ways".
