I look at these past events in the whole historical aspect - not only from the individual slices of history.

And it scares me how easily something that is a testimony of past events, the symbolism of the past regime, policy or morbid desire to have power at any cost - how easy these small but significant pieces of the past events are often presented as the power of something "cool", the "innocent", outside the context of real past events.

Perhaps, this is the result of that, what we see in Poland almost every day. Still.

I do not expect that a nation whose history has not experienced the events that have affected my and the other nations must respond in a similar way as it does many of my countrymen and brothers in the history, but we can not allow these stretches of absolute whitewash from the history - simply - for a price increase in the demand or lack of awareness in topic of historical events.

I can not afford to this by my lack of civil courage, by turning back only for my own peace of mind and the fear of "going out of line", the story of my country and fraternal countries, some dearly paid for value has become something as marginal as a stamp mark on the commercial product, setting its price as high as possible.

Don't worry, I'm not angry or resentful.

Quotation: "stop imprudent hate-posts".

- political correctness does not allow attention to that type of symbols turned into a popular, trendy, and commercially used "cool" symbols?

I drew attention to the symbolism used as something "cool". That was delicate attention.

So, which part of my post is "hate" based?

In my Poland, those symbols are included into Criminal Code:
- Article. 256 of the Criminal Code:

"...production, consolidation, acquisition, storage, transmission, and finally, possession and presentation of printed material, recordings or other items of media symbolism Fascist, Communist or other totalitarian regimes, in order to distribute them, is a crime risk up to two years in prison...".

Commemoration of the history - we must not forget.

Shortness and commercialization for that type of symbols - this is not the right way...

I hope to make myself clear.

For first - take a closer look at history of my Country, Poland.

Take a closer look - for example:
- pacification of Wujek (mine)
- martial law in Poland
- murdered Catholic priest - Jerzy Popiełuszko - who did that and why.

Also - take a closer look for other events of this period - many developments have taken place over several decades.

For second - I wrote my comments in the context of historical events that took place in my Country, not by events painted by some comedy films...

It was not a movie, it was for real. - Dec 08 2010
Sorry, but if you knew a bit more about those events, you would not talk about it that way.

Simple and devoid of hostility parafraze, but appropriate.

Political correctness is out of place here.

I remember how it look like, how my Country was pacified and internally destroyed. Never again!

This is logo, this is a breath of history, especially after all, what my Country went through from the communism and their bloody methods. People cry, when they see again that "logo" - "Sierp i młot" - "The hammer and sickle", they cry for their pacified families and pacified Country - pacified in new way - immediately after the World War 2.

History need to be remembered, but I say NO for thoughtlessness and promote such values like this comunism logo.

They are Countries, that communism internally emptied. One of them is my Country.

History of my Country is very clear for that.

I do not demand that those who do not have to deal with that are aware of how it all looked - like eyes inhabitant of the occupied country.

Greetings for all.

Gabe. - Dec 02 2010
So, what you say? The official communist symbols are now... what? "Cool"? Just like those "cute", red T-shirts with "Che"?

Do you have any idea what true history is behind of these symbols?

I don't think so... - Dec 02 2010

Hmm, it's reminds me "the one way" -> installer & de-installer... (maybe ".deb" do this better?)
And a really short wave weight... 1,2MB.
Why don't use Ogg Vorbis? That will reduce weight to ~ 30KB. You have "Ubuntu" on requirements.

Scripting practice - OK, but the simple way is -> from "sudo" (Ubuntu):

shutdown -h number_of_minutes time

number_of_minutes -> put the number of minutes here, system will shutdown after that number of minutes.

For example:

shutdown -h 120 time

will shutdown computer after 120 minutes. You can set it from "1" minute.

For countdown aborting, set (again by "sudo"):

shutdown -c

Anyway, information about the time remaining to computer shutdown will be displayed on the terminal. - Jun 28 2010

Nice theme, a little bit into KDE4 appearance.

Metacity will be a bit better to look after a minor change - now, the "maximize-focused" & "minimize-focused" buttons looks exactly the same.
A little of green into "maximize-focused" button? - May 22 2010

GTK2, Balou & mouse cursor themes included to "BEOS-inspired-theme " are inspired by the simple, intuitive and clean apperance of BeOS GUI.

Even, if our WM's are look-like R5, they are created from scratch and according to R5 - they are different in apperance.
They are more complicated 8)

"BEOS-inspired-theme " is not a copy of BeOS theme.
Each of the images used there was a hand-created from scratch, and they are not using any of oryginal BeOS images.
None of the lines of code used in configuration files of these themes does not come from the BeOS operating system. They are not using any of BeOS code.

Haiku operating system (since it's foundation) is created with the assumption of binary compatibility with oryginal BeOS system - also with compability of BeOS R5 native file system (BFS), so here we can say that "Haiku is based on BeOS". Can we say that? I think, we can. Native programs (bearing in mind the GCC compatibility) designed for BeOS can run on Haiku without problems, little faster maybe...

Those themes presented above are not copies of BeOS GUI or copies of BeOS code, so they are not based on it (ZETA is based on BeOS).
They are only inspired by (great not only for me) BeOS GUI, and they are clearly different than few WM's available for Linux GUI for years (for example - Xfce4' B5)

If someone create new theme with wood elements inside (wood pictures in background), then can we say: "That theme is wood based"?
No, it's only inspired by clean, worm & natural wood apperance. That's all.
