@dino I hav to say, that it is not nice at all, that You really hav to get in to it, until You discover, that #Dino is avable only for #Linux Users. Unfortunately I feel it confirms people's idea of XMPP-users all beeing nerds. Fortunately I no a little better by now.

@balouqlc @dino there are other XMPP apps for Windows or so.

Anyway, IÄd argue no, it's not for nerds. Maybe you have the wrong assumption taht Linux is for nerds, which is not true at all.

Thus, you can use Linux and you can use Dino. Simple as that. 😃



Yes, Linux isn't just for Nerds. I absolutely don't mind Linux-only software (man, I wish I could use Dolphin on Windows...)
But praising a software and not mentioning early which OSs it runs on is not good form.

Put a note somewhere near the top, so people who aren't running Linux and not likely to switch know that they can stop reading. The same goes for Windows-only software. If I know it might need tweaking WINE, I'll usually just look elsewhere.

@balouqlc @dino

@Mr_Teatime @rugk @dino I totally agree. If ian app is only for windows or what so ever, it should be noted right at the top. Hoever, people who hav to use a screenreader, should rather not try tu use #Linux. I did some resceserch on that issue recently. Funny, I then got in tutch wich a friend of mine. I didnt even know, that he worked with linux for some time. But although there are things like Orka, he strongly recommanded, that I shuld not get in to it at this time. Too many things are still not working for blind folks. He himself is a programmer.So not everyone can use linux.
