Honest or not, I believe you that this is sufficient for your needs. But keep in mind other people use software differently, not everyone use it the same way, or have the same needs for that matter. Some want quick changes, which can be done faster than terminal. Some prefer not to, or don't have time to, learn to use the terminal. People have different learning styles, which applies to use-cases too. Some are much stronger graphically, while others don't need a visual overview. Saying "we" I'd ask you to define "we". When you say "some people", you can refer to a group, and not everyone, without illegitimate people who are not the same as you, or have different needs than you. This is an forever lasting problem in the culture of Linux where many people think their needs mean the needs of everyone else must be the same. Yet a big part of Linux's concept and philosophy is about having choice. This is a paradox, the culture does not match what Linux is all about. We should respect that people have different needs, just because some people don't have the needs, does not make the problem irrelevant. No offense meant at you. It's just overdue for a modern culture to grow out of the old paradigms which are both very limited, and in stark contrast to what Linux actually is about. Seeing the big picture, and not staying hyper focused on the small details. -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
