It makes me feel hopeless.

Why? If such a long time is needed for this release, it might be the best Linux distro in the history of mankind. Cheer up! ;)

I wonder if this is indeed official...

It's one of the fewer times I see this email address in the mailing
lists, and I don't know if person is involvement in the development.

Just one more hater, who has nothing better to do than mock people who actually achieve things. Ignore.

Why do you think that I am mocking the people? If you look at the pace of Trisquel 8 development, you could easily estimate that we can't release it before 2020. Let's be realistic please, okay?

Don't act obtuse, and lose the feigned interest and concern. You are mocking the only path to freedom for the majority of desktop users. You are attempting to undermine morale in a community. You are doing it for fun. You know it.

When I'm bored, I remember that there is an emacs implementation of 2048.

https://github.com/dryman/emacs-2048

I wouldn't suggest this for the other threads about Trisquel 8 because it would create the appearance of censorship, but this one should be moved to the troll lounge.

Thank you (or not) for wasting my time! :-)

I wanted to figure out if not having colors of http://git.io/2048 (the original version with https://github.com/gabrielecirulli/2048 hosting its source code) or those of the Rockbox version would confuse me. Result: 2048 (the game stops there, unfortunately).

"You are mocking the only path to freedom for the majority of desktop users."

That's extremely exaggerated. If you look at a typical technically unskilled user who wants to make the transition from windows or mac, I doubt that he can or ever could achieve this without any help from more advanced users just by using trisquel.
He will have a lot of questions and run into trouble, so there has to be somebody to ask or even set up the system for him.
This person could as well just set up debian for him with taking care for the non-free pitfalls, or even ubuntu (using the right hardware, non-free firmware blobs will never be loaded and remain as dead code on the hard disk).
I, for instance, installed debian on the macbook of my girlfriend, and it's running perfectly and she has no trouble whatsoever with it.
On the other hand, she would never have been able to install trisquel or any other operating system on her own.
Finding, downloading and putting the iso on a usb stick as well as booting the computer alone would have been sufficient for failure.

Besides, an outdated and insufficiently developed OS is clearly not what the "majority of desktop users" want.
Indeed this thread was kind of tasteless and inappropriate,
but the way this forum applies censorship again is just making me sick. This hypocrite "yeah I want freedom of speech, but in this particular case I want to make an exception.." is beyond disgusting.

Most people in this forum never make any compromise with software freedom, the tiniest and most insignificant flaw in a piece of software is often enough to condemn it and blame the developers (just think of debian), but censoring unwanted voices (and like it or not, this thread is nothing but an unwanted voice), that's perfectly fine.

You're right about that. I have to burn the ISO to a flash drive for people and show them how to boot into it.

It takes me about 30 minutes to get someone comfortable with Trisquel. Debian would require hand-holding for a while, and they'd eventually have to learn to use a terminal which would be a deal-breaker for many people.

If Ubuntu can indeed function fully without any proprietary software, then you're right that that Ubuntu 16.04 would be better for most people than Trisquel 7. I don't know how to do this, but I would be glad to know how if you can explain a little more or link to somewhere I could find the information.

> This hypocrite "yeah I want freedom of speech, but in this particular case I want to make an exception.." is beyond disgusting.

I can understand why I came across that way. I believe in freedom of speech, which means that speech should never be illegal. I also believe that posts here should not be censored just for criticizing Trisquel. This has nothing to do with freedom of speech since Trisquel moderators are not a government, but is because I think that dissenting viewpoints are healthy for the community. I did not suggest moving this thread because I disagree with it with OP's opinion. They did not actually state an opinion and were just trolling. I initially thought the thread should be moved to the Troll Lounge because that's what it's for. When I noticed that the OP was impersonating a Trisquel developer I changed my mind and thought that the post should be deleted. After thinking about it more I no longer think it should be deleted but still think it belongs in the Troll Lounge.

It is semi-official, but - if you look at the current pace of Trisquel 8 development - you could easily see that we cannot release it before 2020

If by "semi-official" you mean "talking out of your bottom" I guess so. Instead of making stupid countdowns and feeding the FUD machine I am sure you can find a more useful way to fill your time. Surely there is a book out there you can read.

I just noticed your use of the word "we" here. That goes beyond simple immaturity. You are fraudulently claiming to be a Trisquel developer to create the impression that your FUD is credible. This thread needs to be deleted.

To be honest, I enjoy when people troll sometimes, as long as, IT IS NOT CATFISHING!

seriously... that kind of trolling is pure evil.

Other forms such as nonsense and sarcasm types, are fun.

Here's an example:

Systemd the donald trump of linux

but really who doesn't want an unstable batshit crazy piece of software that makes the system so complex that bugs are almost impossible to find...

And who doesn't want all the security and stability and lockin problems of systemd in their system.... YEAH... let's screw up gnu/linux today!

a prime example you would like... :)
ps, sarcasm type in work!

In my opinion it all depend what region of the world you are, or religious upbringing that person has..
will you believe those factor's..

I got a dream....I forgot the rest..

One time I was fishing for catfish in Florida, Jacksonville and all I got was a 3.5 feet bull-shark. did I kept him? No, I release it back in the water, I want him to grow strong and a mean beast.. that's all folks for my episode.

I dunno, I think donald trump is absolutely terrifying, he is a scary xenophobic sociopath, and a wannabe dictator.

Imagine if Hitler was extremely dumb and didn't know how to do his job: That is donald trump for the most part... except him also being a coward...

so when I say systemd is the donald trump of linux, I am making fun of him. :)

big time!

donald trump = unstable

systemd = unstable

yep.

My point was to mock the stability of both systemd and donald trump at the same time...

facts to support, your theory all in coincidence and relationship of your timer:
https://trisquel.info/en/wiki/belenos

Belenos

The 7.0.x LTS edition, codename Belenos.

Belenos is a long term support (LTS) version, which will be supported until mid-2019, getting security updates until 2019. It is based on Ubuntu 14.04 (Trusty Tahr).

Since Trisquel 6.0, the releases are LTS based.

the ballena or beleno is stopping, dragging their tempo at a very slowly swimm and getting ready to be eaten, devour, away by other sharks

Well you forget to add, They forgot to rewind the clock and set the right tome. Perhaps too much sangria wine and paella running through their veins.or maybe they are suffering a mental deficit to the public, Who knows? what is the real answer!
