Never I try to claim any expertise and never I try to complain of
anything. It is just give some thought/idea for developers and experts
like yourself and Peter about what I, as a user, feel.

About the size of ISO, what I want to say is:
Do not worry so much about the size ( as long as below 700 MB),

May be I should just write it to the point and not write it like
complaining about disc not full, really stupid indeed. Offcourse I did
burn small ISOs file like IPCOP or any other ISOs I want to use.

I thought INX invites user feedback as below:

You don't need to be an "expert" to give useful feedback - in fact the
idea is to make INX work well for people who are just starting, and
are a bit scared of the console. If you have questions, feel free to
ask at that email address.

But looks like some feedbacks are considered not productive and some
sort of complain?

Do something productive?  Well, for me it is very-very difficult. I do
not know any programming at all. But I thought giving feedback is
productive, but I might be wrong though.

I did try to make some script to help people installing e-Sword
through wine. Very simple and stupid script though:


Furthermore, the download progress using zenity stop working on
intrepid. On Hardy, it show the download speed and the download
progress. So, I decided to file a bug report (not sure if it was
treated as a feed back or complain, but I am happy as the ubuntu
developer take action on that):


By the way, It is the first time I see gNewSense, looks quite
interesting. I will take a look, but I am really afraid to say what I
feel about that website/the program, lest somebody might thought I am
ungrateful and complain for what is already free.
