Compared about showing it to you per default, while you are not even there to
notice. I also don't care about the workplace at all, all there are adults and
should be able to handle it. But what about at home ? 

At least i am not subject to it since i don't use KDE, but still, i disagree
with you minizing this like you did ? If you had children, and left your box
on with the screen saver working while you are out shoping or something, how
would you feel about this ? And i feel that all you who commented on this
minimizing it, as well as those who where afraid to look bad at the office
fully miss the point here.

Bah, sid is nice enough for my own usage, since sarge is mostly useless,
having outdated unsecure kernels, and a loosy glibc on powerpc, and i have to
run sid anyway as a developer, but where i work we where also thinking in
delivering a full sarge set with every pegasos machine sold, and i can't in
the light of that agree with doing this with a unmodified sarge. This sure
would not be happening with ubuntu for example, and i fear that this is just
one more example that we are not really true to our social contract, caring
less and less about our users, in order to center more about the need and
whims of our developer base.
