As a free software developer who has devoted a lot of his spare time
on developing free software I always found the demanding attitude of
some users very inappropriate. This is no different regarding the demands
made on Novell.

I spend 3/4 hours a day for opensource, mostly through documentation
(and running a LUG)

I also was running a big association some years ago. When I decided to
stop, I warned the other members a very long time ahead (more than one

if you want the advantages of opensource, you have also to be
respectfull with the others.

Did I say anything else? I don't think that Novell has acted disrespectful
regarding SaX2. When the decision was made it was made sure that nobody was
left out in the rain.
As with all new technologies there are problems of course. We need to fix

do so but didn't find the time.

Then we should take a look at the situation and see what we can do about

Ok, makes semse - but how was I supposed to know?

Of course if the new
monitor does not support the old mode you will be left without a display
- which is no different from before

sax2 -a did the job. Without sax2, what could I have done?

If you did monitor detection and it didn't work with your new monitor
we should look into where the problems are and fix them.


and I don't want here to focus on one specific case, I just gave
examples to show the present system don't work well (I have others)
