OK guys, I am bad egoist - I want to be productive and use comfortable
tools, sometimes I create them, and always try to remember about good
standard, quality and usability. Also there are some bad egoists
around. New vision is not necessary against standard or backward
compatibility, because standard is what makes base for further
development. I don't think development requires enforcement, but its
your socialist style with your nice theories and wise words, because
you enforce others to do as you please with no alternative for them
(while this alternative is possible). I just wanted to ask for old
menu back, or anything that could be similar to this menu - its not
about changing your vision, but accepting feedback from users that
enjoyed this feature. Don't you think such vision would be much more
fulfilled when at low cost both sides are happy? None of this is going
to happen. We waste more time and energy on talking than simply fixing
this issue. The patch is created for 2.6, I am switching back to 2.4
then. You can be proud of your bright new vision and forcing everyone
to use it, because you know better than user. You are right, I can
still use version 2.4 or patch the sources of 2.6, but like I said -
its not Open Source anymore, only the source code is available,
because you are not open to feedback and user ideas, even when patch
is ready. Maybe someone come soon and enforce his own vision
irreversibly destroying your work, then you will understand what I was
talking about.
