Hi Feren,

Waiting for the next FerenOS. Pretty bold endeavor trying to unify so many eclectic elements. Wish you the best.

Hi there,

My enthusiasm with this theme hasn't diminished a bit. Quite on the contrary.
By the way, what's your favorite DE, CM? Just wanna know your top 3.

Thanks

So all in all Git is an awesome tool. Like no other.

Maybe it should be split up into different DEs. Increasingly difficult to follow.

NO NEED TO SPLIT IT (I'm an idiot)

1. Splitting an already complex project would make it virtually unmanageable.

2. One can always find out whether a particular release is relevant or not for him/herself simply by checking the branch of favorite DE on Git. For example, I can tell that the last release in which Cinnamon was updated is 0.8.2 (although no clear reference appears in change log). The best change log is the code itself and Git makes that easy. One can even pinpoint the line. Just wondering how can you put up with a caveman like myself.

Hi again CM,

Please confirm with simple yes/no that the latest release in which Cinnamon has been updated is indeed 0.8.2. I wanna make sure that I'm no caveman anymore (at least in that respect). Thanks.

Hello W10 Theme Lovers,

It's been a very prolific year in Linux world and the theme we love has been a major part of it. It's just astonishing how far it's evolved in such a short span of time.
The year to come will bring a new LTS and many more novelties. I also have great expectations from the W10 theme and It's my conviction that it will be up to the challenges ahead.
I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Hi Moihack,

Congrats for your spin. Definitely in my top 5. That means a lot 'cause I only go for the "creme de la creme". I wonder whether you would consider spinning a Cinnamon equivalent as well.
I wish you a happy and fruitful New Year.

OKAY Guys,

I have a message for you and it goes like this:
Linux is a great thing. Some of us like it this way, some of us that way. Whatever your preferences or opinions I respect you all. If I offended any of you in any way, I apologize. Let us put aside our differences and respect each other. What do you say? And don't forget to vote me up. Thank you.

Hi Everyone,

We are having a debate concerning SCSS on Git. If you feel you know what that's all about, please join us (on Git). Medium-long term survival of the theme might be at stake.
