13 it shows... It shows that I applied some of my leader rule : come with a
14 already built idea, let people be desapointed, let them argue, fight, so that
15 they defend their point of views, and collect the conclusions.
17 The only conclusion for now is that we'll do a vanilla DE compliant with gentoo
18 core, with proper default stuff, working together if installed.
20 I'm happy with that. I just want to make sure that's what you want : we won't
21 have gentoo graphical touch, no default background, no gentoo menu by default,
22 and so on.
24 On the other hand, I feel like you want something else, but don't know exactly
25 what. We can continue discussing about that to find it out.
27 About the mdk and the personnal things : the best way to be better than your
28 enemy, is to stop hating him.
