I knew many of the developers were young when Andras told me last year that at 27 he was one of the old ones. With Michal pushing 30 and me at 47 it looks like right now 63% of the people in this pole are younger than our team's key developers and 95% are younger than me.

Nurse! Roll my chair over by the window. ;-)

Why do you expect developers to be especially young?

I'm a software developer and I think there's rather a lack of young people in that job.
With my 22 years I am one of the youngest ones in my company.

Well I'm also 21, and I don't think that I'm old for a developer. I just began to studie at Facly of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science.
I look at that way: Younger people are more talented, but older have more expirieces.

BTW I just began to expirience QT, dcop, etc. and I'm impressed what you get for 0 €.

I guess for leading a complex project like Quanta, a experienced developer like you is perfect.

IMO more experienced developers would not harm and if they give their knowledge to younger developers these are able to jump on the wagon much faster.

 But this ....

..... begs the question, are the people in here developers, or users, of the software. I'm sure I'm not the only person here who comes in to see what is new and to check it out, build it. Supply feedback etc. What is most interesting is that this is almost a mirror image of my local lug. There the most common decade is the 30's this also seems to be true in the local bug (bsd users group) as well. My experience seems to point to the maturing of the user side of things.

Age is a relative thing. I'm old enough to know better and young enough to keep doing it. I've been writing code as long as computers existed. That's longer than many of you have been alive. Do I like it? HELL YES. It sure beats paperwork. Do I knock younger people? HELL NO! I welcome your fresh thoughts, and the challenge to keep up with you.

Yea, I was thinking that myself. Me, I'm a user. I'm not a coder, so my contributions are limited right there. I'm also color blind, so my contributions are limited even further. The best i can do (for right now) is to continue talking as best I can (without being judge-mental...) about KDE and OSS in general.

Well, in fact dinosaurs died out because of an accident, not because they were less advanced than mamals - on the countrary, mamals vere much more primitive, and their fast evolutioned started only 65 million years ago after the asteroid hit the Earth and caused some major cataclysms that killed about 90% of animal species.
Wow, that was a really long sentence! :)

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
