So grateful for Sarah

You know it really cracked me up that some people were upset about the codename of linux mint 17.3 being Sarah. Seriously, people. You really have nothing better to do with your lives than to complain about something like that? Come on now.

It’s just a codename.

Besides, Sarah in the Bible was a good woman. Hard-working and sure knew how to stand by her man. The type of woman I want by my side when things get scary so if anything it should be seen as a good thing to be named after her. So while, I know that wasn’t in mind at the time I think it is most appropriate just the same.

Sarah gave me something that I have wanted to use since 2013…..Wobbly windows!!!

Wobbly Windows!! Hooray!!!

Yes, so now I can go straight outta Compton and into Compiz. I think it’s a much nicer place anyway.

It also doesn’t hurt that 17.3 Sarah solves a problem I have been having for years but just didn’t know what it was called. Actually, I still don’t know what it’s called but at least now it’s explained better here .

Now if you are concerned about the changes Clem has spoken of to come in Linux Mint 18 then that makes more sense. Reason I say that is that likely for many of us we came as refugees from Ubuntu and honestly are afraid of Linux Mint doing what was done with Ubuntu when it brought out Unity.

Just the same it does give me much comfort to know that if I truly don’t like the changes that are to come then I can just click my mouse and have everything just like I want it. This is something that gives me more confidence in Clem and the rest of the team.  They, unlike some people who I will leave nameless…..

Sike!!!

Remember when Ubuntu started using Unity as its desktop environment?  I sure do.   In fact I will be so bold as to say that Linux Mint 18 will cause more unity than that mess that has the audacity that is called Unity.  I hated that so much it caused me to leave Ubuntu and come to the warm arms of Linux Mint.  If you want to read more about that see what I wrote about it at the time.

Again it was anything but unifying.
