Yesterday Koen asked me on #oe will I attend GUADEC this year.

22:59 [koen] hrw: attending guadec?
22:59 [hrw] koen: not planned to
23:00 [koen] mallum and I thought it would be funny to bring you there

I do not think does it have sense for me as KDE guy to visit GNOME conference. I do not have plans to switch GUI environment and I think that GNOME team too much tries to make usage simple as possible. For me they oversimplified it already. And when last time I used G* (Ubuntu 6.10 LiveCD) I had a feeling that it does not fits me — Terminal application (most used application at that time) which need reconfiguring to be usable, which hijack F10 key to enter menu… ARGH

But I looked at price of flight connections and discovered one interesting thing. PLL LOT (Polish airlines) are something to avoid if want to flight from Poznań to somewhere else. Same flights checked on Lufthansa website costs 2/3 of LOT price. Someone takes quite lot of money just to sell someone’s other offer isn’t it?

Attending GUADEC?

    Regarding the F10 for the menu, that only works if you have the menubar enabled. Disable it and F10 isn’t captured.

    Alternatively, enable custom keybindings and just unbind that menu item.

    Ross: and thats what I did – changed some of keybindings. But gnome-terminal was first term application which I used which tried to steal Fkeys.

    I like Gnome for that simplicity. A system must be easy, not full of options.
