I have to agree. Just because someone's comments are long don't mean
they don't have merit, or a good point. Personally I have to agree with
the comment. Something like VB is indeed evil, but giving users a quick
and easy way to write apps was a huge boost to the windows world. 99%
of a simple app could be "written" by clicking and dragging and it gave
users the power to create what was missing. I remember writing a
picture viewer in a couple of hours years and years ago.
If the commenter was not "well informed" then why weren't they?
Assuming it's not a troll (and I doubt it was), is the information out
there about the interfaces or ease of gnome programming lacking, or just
Just a thought.
