Sorry you were offended. I do not think I should back away from what I said previously. Nok asked:
My friend drives a Datsun. I showed him where to get a free Ferrari, but now my friend wants to know how to make his Datsun look and go like a Ferrari.
so I responded:
Yea. Got an idea. Put all the careful planning, hard work at creating, time at testing and debugging and all other effort that pinoc put into creating full monty into your friend's system. When you've done all of that, you will have a close (perhaps) approximation of full monty.
Easier to install the real thing and say "thank you" to pinoc.
I must stand by what I said. I know the amount of work pinoc put into creating FM. I had the great privilege of being a tester for him and of having been privy to the planning stages of the project.
You should be aware of some things:
We do not discuss other distros here - neither pro nor con. There is a rule, yes.
This is not the place to get support for kubuttu. They have their own support, or there are "generic" forums available.
pinoc is in charge of FM and decides what he will/won't do with it and the months of very hard work he put into developing it.
Don't misunderstand me. I understand that you are frustrated, but even so, there are rules/conventions to follow. Just as you have the right to ask that you be given all of pinoc's work, he has the right to say no. A rant about divisiveness and being united is not a good argument in favor of stripping him of his rights. Any road, you or anyone else is free to do the research and the work, just as he did.
In the open source world we have gotten used to receiving other people's labor for free. It has come, perhaps, to the point where we believe it is our right to have anything another has developed "on demand." (I'm talking about all of the research, development and debugging work here.) If someone says that he will not "give" his development process along with the product, he has that right.
