Re: Design choice for suspend option only

I don't care what the reasoning behind it is. Why can't somebody put an option in the settings dialog? why are we forcing this down people's throats? I agree it's the right way forward, but users don't see it that way and there's no reason to force it.

I by no means wish to bring this subject back into the mailing list, but I
think he referred to discussion among developers (actually, I believe it
would be designers) regarding this feature when it was first brought

Anyway, from what I understand, I think most designer's discussions
are made via IRC, so good luck finding a log on that :(
