Yes I know but I was talking of removing it. With a dedicated mobile theme, I can easily remove what I don't want, meanwhile,  I just checked out Elkarte and this theme (wip) makes me open my mouth in amazement

This is a well known issue with Win7+ called winsxs. Just for that reason one is tempted to jump ship to Linux.(but not really, better to buy a bigger SSD/HDD instead and at least have good programs :P :) )

I do - actively contributing to a couple of open source applications and operating systems. It's just that I don't have the time to establish a better Linux distribution completely on my own.
Each to their own. I like the way it works and style of Linux, where as I don't like BSD that much. Personal Preference.

Have you ever heard of idiocracy?
Seriously though, FLOSS was about transparency one day. Systemd blurs transparency and makes it harder to understand what your system is doing. Also, with systemd enabled, you'll have to accept a pretty lot of default services if you don't want to lose "functionality". Replacing them is deprecated. Choice is made harder.
But the majority of the other alternatives also have this flaw, on top of them being very encumbered by cost (and closed nature). Each to their own, if you don't like Linux then more power to you mate, enjoy BSD.

Missed the last part, haven't you?
*shrug* I guess

No one said you were.
It was an implication, perhaps I am reading too much into it.

Too many bugs for my taste these days, but at one point they'll stop coming, I suppose..!
I know the feeling. :P

And here it is. I wanted to postpone it even more... But you don't deserve it. If anything goes wrong, I'll deserve it. In the meantime, please enjoy this; some of you have been waiting over three years for this moment.

Read the README for instructions.
I will attempt to release a public alpha once I get some feedback confirming that everything's working all right.

This is the official plugin repository. Most of these were written by Pete, John and Shitiz. The current license for them is the Wedge license; eventually, though, my goal is to make it clear which plugins are under more permissive licenses. Perhaps I'll even be able to make them all MIT, or something. If you write a plugin and don't want to share it under the MIT license, you can always push it elsewhere.

This one isn't a new repo, I introduced it recently on this blog, but what's new is that all of its files are now governed by the MIT license.

Lastly, if you're planning to make the switch to Wedge from an active SMF forum, please remember this:
  • There is currently no 'proper' importer available. Pandos confirmed to me that the official importer is broken, so I'll look into it ASAP.
  • Said official importer will be pushed to the Wedge/tools repo (or its own repo) when available. I'm planning to have it around by next weekend at the latest.
  • If Thorsten looks into it before I do (I know he loves this kind of thing), then he may fix the importer before I do. See? A programmer's logic is no more complex than yours.
  • It's still an alpha, even three years in. Meaning nothing is set in stone, and if a change I make breaks your forum, you can't complain to me. And if it makes it better, then you can't complain either. That was the whole point, after all.
Now, please allow me for a short break, before I jump into new adventures with you all.

Well, I have an untold agenda for this year, that doesn't ONLY involve Wedge, but relies heavily on my ability to release a stable 1.0 of Wedge next summer! (I know... Who am I kidding! Okay, a stable... beta :P)

I've already discussed it. The main language, to me, is the most commonly 'written' one, on the Internet. US English is spoken by more people than British/UK English (even if you count Irish, Canadian, New Zealandish (?) and Australian variations into it, and whatever else might exist), so it gets to be the 'default' choice for me. If there were more French-Canadians speaking French, the default French language version would have tabernacles and crisses de calisse all over it. Well, I don't know why I'd have to use expletives in the translations, but whatever. :P

- It also helps me actually. It's good to go through what you did, and determine if it was worth the time. I think it was. There are some things I'm not sure about (php caching being at the forefront right now; given that you have to disable minification if you want to be able to debug files, for instance), but it's version 0.1 alpha, I can wait for feedback. (Well actually I'd love to get feedback from all who got repo access, but...)

- he wouldn't say anything about stuff he disliked. Just like I wouldn't for him. I could complain about bugs and stuff but I couldn't complain about big features such as infractions or mod filters that meant so many changes under the hood for things I'd never use. But that's the thing. I'm not the only user of Wedge. Just like he wasn't. So there's bound to be people who only use Wedge because of features we didn't write.

- is he a good coder? Of course, aren't we all? It's all 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration.
He can be very hard to follow, whatever it means. But I'm not perfect either. He's currently shaping the future of SMF and you'll find that his version of it is "Wedge, without Nao's crap". Well I'm sure you'll find that this way, it'll be hard for SMF to ever catch up if he's not willing to acknowledge that Wedge's good ideas aren't limited to him. I have no problems doing that for him. Heck I have no problems acknowledging Facebook's good ideas either. They have a team of thousands of paid devs. Doesn't mean they're all monkeys uh?
