I did also notice that the, "original" was indeed released before this one, several days before in fact. - Aug 04 2009

Honestly, it does look near-exactly the same as the, "original image": in fact, the only difference I spotted was that the sun was darkened at the left on this version. Otherwise, it looks near-exactly the same. - Aug 04 2009
Scribus

Office Apps by scribusdocs 61 comments

This is the most niggly thing I find about Microsoft Office and OpenOffice, that I would like to see here: could you make it so that, when you click-drag an object, could you set it to actually show the object being moved, rather then a dotted outline?

It's already much better then MS Office and OpenOffice, in that when you stop dragging, the object actually lands where you dragged it.

Good work so far - keep it up! My mother's still using Windows for Serif's PagePlus - it would be nice to be able to replace it. Thanks a bunch. - May 02 2009

The open-source philosophy: lots of small, specialized applications. This is specialized for getting the layout right. Other programs are specialized for getting your words right. Using lots of individual, specialized tools is how Linux has become far better then Windows.

Besides, if I remember correctly, there's a universal undo button on all keyboards. Let me check... Oh yes, it's still there. It's called, "Backspace".

Thirdly, if you're going to mock a developer's work, don't expect them to do what you want. You're talking to people - volunteers, mostly - not some big company that you can yell and scream at until you get what you want. Maybe if you ask nicely, he'll give you a refund. - May 02 2009
no more loud ads

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by beany 7 comments

P.S: I agree, an informative ad related to the website/current content is better then a flash advert that gets in your face. Google takes this approach. So did (do?) W3C (in w3schools.com). It's all-together friendlier, and also better for the advertisers. - Apr 15 2009

... Konqueror comes with an adblocker built-in. It's compatible with FireFox adblocking filters. What's the problem? O.o - Apr 15 2009

Sorry for yet another post, but it turns out it was another widget that was mucking my panel up. Even better, I've yet to stumble on a show-stopper bug in your widget! - Apr 09 2009

I actually meant: the applets in the panel remain a fixed width, even if you resize the panel. - Apr 09 2009

This is a simply awesome task manager widget. I'd love to see this as the default (and hey, maybe it will after some polish)! Keep up the good work!

One small bug report: when the panel is vertical, STasks causes some funky scaling. The panel remains a fixed width. - Apr 09 2009

This is an excelent tool. Very useful for when I'm running 3D applications. - Apr 10 2008
dolphin+tab, please make it happen!!

Desktop Concepts by fapasv 9 comments

What did dissapoint me was that I was trying to get rid of Dolphin all together, but couldn't in KDE 4 (KDE 4 depends on Dolphin and not the other way round), so that e.g. the device manager would open devices into Konqueror instead. I couldn't find a way to change the default folder manager, either... - Apr 05 2008

Very good - very good indeed. I wish I could use 3D modeling programs like that. - Apr 05 2008

WINE.
I had better compatibility in WINE with games then I did with windows XP, because where windows XP crashed when it didn't detect the appropriate 3D graphics card (the fact that I don't have it would explain that), WINE still ran the game (though I couldn't see anything because most of it was in 3D) and I could still quit and carry on using the PC.

Linux can do ANYTHING (with a bit of tinkering)! - Apr 05 2008
