Re: Apps schnapps.

I couldn't agree more. Any app which is in effect a "nice" UI and does not add anything more than that should be uninstalled and down-voted. Saves on storage and removes the need to update the app to boot.

Linux

Just make it work

I don't care about whether Gnome or KDE is the default: I'd change it to KDE anyway. I just want a version that works. OpenSUSE 11.1 was a complete disaster from my perspective.

BTW @Charles King: I suggest we've already exceeded your estimates by some way!
