Yes, I see how you treat people who uses your software. Just normal
people, who have their opinion and have the right to speak it. What
could I expect from that, a miracle? No. You aim at *ambitious*
people. That's says everything! You direct to some logs saying 'read
what we did'! But I don't need read it. I as an ordinary user saw not
much new since last 7 years. And you don't blame me on that I use only
basic operations. How we call people who don't want to help and just
says 'learn shortcuts'? You name it. And what you saying about rotting
mindset? Are you trying to put that on me? Don't bother with that,
that is sure not me.

And toolbars *are* silver bullet! Because software like Gimp will stay
crippled without them. No matter how much it can do! You think
different? Then you are wrong! End of story.
