Re: Middle click, "dumbing down" Slashdotted

All this contraversy
Because I come from a Windows background, and because I was developing software before the mouse gained the centre wheel, with the tilt and press actions, I am more brainwashed into using the right mouse button for the paste function.
What should be remembered by developers is the rule of three.
  1. Here are the changes I am planning/going to make in the next months. Feedback please.
  2. Here are the changes that are implemented, as I told you and we agreed upon.
  3. Here are the wonderful changes that I made to improve the system based on your feedback.
Of course, if you omit steps one and two, you lose support.
As Gnome is emulating the Android interface, you should know that if I wanted a Android interface to Linux, I would certainly go the Android route. 
Heh Gnome gurus!
Linux users are developers, and do not want the tablet/Android interface.
Did you follow step 1 above, to give us your roadmap?  This lack of information spreading has been lacking and from what I read from the Gnome forums, much of the design has been "seat of the pants", with the programmer being the architect, or vice-versa. Steps 2 and 3 are certainly unknown by most distributions and end-users.  None of the distributions that I have evaluated know whats coming. To them, its a blackbox that they take and install, and ignore

I do regularly mix middle click copy / paste with ctrl+c/v copy / paste.
