Sometimes when you work hard on an app, it is easy to get lost in the bug reports, merge proposals and mailing lists and momentarily forget that there are real people out there in the world who are benefiting your work. It certainly made my day, when one of those users sent me an email thanking me for the work I did and how much they love it.

The new google+ interface is really starting to annoy me..

1. Clicking on the "Search Textfield" at the top first loads the search page and only then allows you to type a search string. Why? That is so counterintuitive.

2. While creating a post, if you want to share it to someone, you need to press "See More" which takes a few moments to load and only then allows you to type the name of the contact whom you want to share it with.

Seriously?

I used to frequently visit worldofgnome.org to read up on news related to Gnome Shell. Their posts almost always showed stuff that you normally don't find in other blogs since they build the packages straight from Gnome Git and hence it was new and hot stuff. But after their latest post by +alex diavatis, they have totally lost my respect. I mean seriously some of the arguments he describes in the post linked below is just ridiculous!

I like to specifically focus on some of his points.

1. Ubuntu 13.10 has nothing new to offer since 13.04. That was kinda weird, because 13.04 hadn’t either any exciting to offer over 12.10.

So according to him 12.10 and 13.04 did not offer much over 12.04? Are you freaking serious?

Why don't you go take a look at other credible sources like http://www.webupd8.org/2012/10/ubuntu-1210-released-see-whats-new.html and http://www.webupd8.org/2013/04/ubuntu-1304-raring-ringtail-final-beta.html

I agree that Ubuntu 13.10 is not revolutionary but it is very stable and would lead to a much better, stable 14.04 LTS.

2. SteamsOS drops Ubuntu for Debian

You know +Bilal Akhtar is so right. We in the Linux community are more bothered (some delighted and some worried) about the fact that SteamOS is based on Debian rather than Ubuntu. We are idiots!!! Instead of rejoicing at the fact that SteamOS uses the Linux Kernel, we are more concerned that it isn't based on Ubuntu. Seriously *Grow up!!* All this bickering is not helping anyone.

3. Mir and Unity 8 are postponed after 14.04

First of all, no one claimed that 14.04 would be shipping Unity 8. It isn't Canonical's fault that you heard wrong.

As for Mir, they made a QA assessment if XMir is ready to ship in 13.10 and it didnt pass that. And 14.04 LTS is really not the release to be shipping something as huge as XMir. What's wrong with that? When Unity was introduced in 11.04, people complained about it being incomplete and introduced too early. Now Canonical learns from that and delays introducing XMir and everyone complains still.

+Michael Hall Maybe the word isn't right. But more or less all 4 points are valid. End even if I am wrong, then the fault goes back to Canonical. Do things better for communities and individuals. As it was used to be. 

+Nekhelesh Ramananthan 1. I don't exactly understand how I bash the Ubuntu. By giving 3 links, make a joke with Futurama, and saying that I don't consider Ubuntu to be as good as it used to be? 

2. Journalism? We don't do that. About Unity benefit the desktop.. Ok, lets have Unity 8 first ;)

3. Again. There is no alternative. Open Source in Desktop is one way solution. What else Valve could do?  I never said that Valve won't help Linux Desktop in many aspects. I said, that Linux will help Valve more.

The uNav team is proud to announce the release of uNav 0.59 code named Beauty and the Beast. In my opinion, this is truly one of the best releases we have pushed out. The code name should give you...

On my way back to the Netherlands after a relatively long stay in India. Thinking back, it has been ages since I stayed in India for this long. Definitely miss the Indian environment...far more buzz and a good sense of familiarity.
