roy__"Golden Dawn is an establishment project created in order to marginalize any anti-EU nationalism by turning it into violent racial hatred. A good number of Greeks must understand this, however the narrative given by the media has been successful. Obviously the EU and banking friends have held on. This is what happens to grass roots movements when the government has total control and has destroyed the identity of nation relative to May 08 05:41

schestowitz 08 07:14 I hardly link to #ubuntu and #canonical stories any longer. It's a conscious decision.May 08 07:14
schestowitz"Too many stories to publish? ;)"May 08 07:14
schestowitzNo, Ubuntu used to be a community project when I joined 8 years ago. Now it's Mark's ego that's driving the project; I wish him the best, but I'm not volunteering time to strike some billionaire's ego.May 08 07:15

schestowitz 08 07:19 I hardly link to #ubuntu and #canonical stories any longer. It's a conscious decision.May 08 07:19
schestowitz"The community is doing a wonderful job - you just aren't paying details to the lower levels of activity. Mark is only on the higher level."May 08 07:20
schestowitzThere are examples where Mark vetoes a majority opinion of the community. For me, a major one was mono-common.May 08 07:20
schestowitz"But I'm not saying you should publish stories about Ubuntu - it is your right not to."May 08 07:21
schestowitz"I'm just saying you're not being fair to the Ubuntu community by saying it is "Mark's project"."May 08 07:21
schestowitzI will still publish links to Ubuntu stories, but de-emphasise them a bit. There are more community-driven projects out there, and they deserve attention. Ubuntu relies a lot on inertia and hype -- the latest release did not even receive good reviews, it's stagnating.May 08 07:22
schestowitzIf Mark had a hands-off approach to the project (still), then he would not have alienated the community root which brought to Ubuntu millions of users by recommendations, free support, bug reports, installations, promotion, etc. As of late, Mark upset a lot of key developers in the GNU/Linux world - they complained openly.May 08 07:27
schestowitz"May 08 07:57
schestowitzI agree there are more community centric projects out there for sure.May 08 07:57
schestowitzThe latest Ubuntu release didn't get as much attention because it didn't have any particularly big new features. The reason for this is the work being done on the convergence front - the developers cannot work on everything. I expect 13.10 to be the same since most of Canonical is working on Ubuntu touch.May 08 07:57
schestowitzPersonally I think the 13.04 release is great because it brought lots of stability that wasn't in 12.10. Better release stable than always with lots of features I say.May 08 07:57
