Of about 10 independent linux-only users in my acquaintance, only one is happy with gnome3 (after significant modification of the default theme). The rest is either deliberately not upgrading, or converted their desktop to XFCE, LXDE or even KDE. > This is a serious question: > What is the actual point and useful information provided by the > netspeed applett? Although I don't use the applet, I can still imagine some legitimate use cases: * Your provider boasted some a particularly fast download. You have a feeling that he does not quite deliver. * There are several wlan nodes accessible. You'd like to choose based on actual performance. * An application does not provide the luxery of an explicit download speed display. -- Kai-Martin Knaak Email: kmk@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx Öffentlicher PGP-Schlüssel: http://pool.sks-keyservers.net:11371/pks/lookup?search=0x6C0B9F53 _______________________________________________ gnome-list mailing list gnome-list@xxxxxxxxx http://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gnome-list
