Re: Ubuntu Lucid Lynx is Big brother Ubuntu

I must admit that this is crap. I don't blame the ubuntu team  for 
wanting to integegrate this kind of tools in the default base packages, 
Since ubuntu is mainly designed for the masses. Nevertheless i will 
remove them ( the ubuntu one client as well ) in my upcoming lucid lynx 
fork ( www.shadowcircle.org )

The simplelogger will remain, though with an improved hacked theme that 
makes it less crapy.

    A centralized identity system?

    You're going overboard here. You're just a rich trustfunder and
    your proles are afraid to say you're making a huge error.

    Just a tip: when you're giving advice that you want to be heard,
    try not to insult the other guy before you get to the advice ;-)

    I never asked for my OS to become this big chatroom filled with a
    bunch of autistic, idiotic facebook kids. I can't stand that.

    Look, you can't expect me to be accountable for who you follow on
    Twitter, or who your Facebook friends are. Nothing's going to show
    up on your desktop that you didn't sign up for.

    Ubuntu one? Chatroom accounts? Online, Invisible? You're turning
    the default Ubuntu into your huge autistic chatroom.

    We're bringing social interaction from the web, into the desktop.
    We're breathing life back into the city center, as it were. We're
    making the desktop more human. This is our mission, our reason for
    loving what we do. I'm sorry if it offends you, but it's got many
    people int he community very excited. There's no commercial
    conflict of interests here - we're putting it in by default purely
    to delight users. I accept that you're not delighted, but I don't
    see any signs that this won't be one of the favorite things about
    the release, for most users.

    If it turns out not to be the case, either before or after we make
    the release, we can course correct in six months time.

    Disable this, or name it teenbuntu.

    I'm not sure why you think you can issue orders to me.

    You are integrating this immature stuff into a Long Term Support
    version of Ubuntu.

    Yes. The Ubuntu team won't integrate it if they don't think it's
    ready. They wanted it for 9.10, but it wasn't ready. Now it may be
    so. Please do file bugs, and thank you for the feedback. If the
    general feedback we get, including yours, suggests it's not right
    or not ready, it won't ship.

    Desktop or not, I don't want to be forced into
    your schema and big brother "social tray icon". Remove it by
    default. Make it available via the software center.

    Please fix this, you're making a big mistake. Other than that, I'm
    extremely excited for Lucid Lynx.

    Well, you can remove it yourself. And I won't be offended if you do.

    Thanks for the feedback, keep happy,
    Mark
