Heck all I did was reply to this thread, and look what I get hit with once I sit down at the PC (Was I out of line by simply replying to the mailing list stating my observation?): <Chrysantine> jayson_r: You know it would help if you would help regarding those GNOME issues you complain on the ML about. <Chrysantine> jayson_r: Although complaning about things behind peoples backs is, of course, the preferable solution to all issues. <Chrysantine> jayson_r: And the fact is we can't bloody answer everyone. Many of us simply do not use GNOME at all - what do you expect us to do, pull a rabbit out of our tushy? <Chrysantine> jayson_r: And the fact is we can't bloody answer everyone. Many of us simply do not use GNOME at all - what do you expect us to do, pull a rabbit out of our tushy? <Chrysantine> jayson_r: It's starting to get on my nerves seriously - people whine and moan behind our back yet do jack shit themselves. Everyones a critic, eh?
I don't understand your point. The real question is: how many guys in #opensuse-gnome, involved in the GNOME development or in the GNOME community at opensuse try to help users on the official support channel?
What Chrisantine pointed out is an elementary truth: 80% of openSUSE users use KDE, and almost all of the active members of the support channel (#suse) use KDE. I agree they should not send GNOME users to other distributions, but you can't really expect they learn how to use GNOME to help people.
