Comment 181 for bug 532633

I suggest one simple thing.
Move to another distribution if you don't like Mark/Canonnical's philosophy
GNU/Linux world is big enough to find the distribution that fit your needs.
Personally i don't find polite the way someone treated Mark (and at the same time Mark treated the community) but i don't use Ubuntu because Mark is a nice person.
I use Ubuntu because it rocks.
I will open gconf-editor, it's not a problem.
