    1. I really like this site. I try to read it eveeryday to keep me updated about new things.Thank you for your hard work.

    2. However, there is one negative thing. May I ask you “Do you test all the codes on 12.04LTS before you post them?” Most of the time your terminal codes do NOT work on 12.04LTS.For example, this code has “unmet dependencies” in 12.04LTS.

    Once, one of your codes lead to the “Linux black screen of death” for me, but I have no hard feelings.It is a risk I took.

    I realise that you cannot test all your codes on all versions. To do that a person will need 10 or more computers.

    All I say is, that I like your site, but I no longer trust your codes for 12.04LTS.

    I hope that you do not feel angry. If you are not sure about 12.04LTS, please do not say at the top of the page that it covers 12.04LTS.
