    Hi Elav,

    I've been looking at some of those articles and one of them is from… Courage! It made me nostalgic: when DesdeLinux started I was one of the few regulars on the blog and I spent my time correcting writing and spelling errors. And that Courage, how much nuisance it was !, heh heh. Too bad he banished himself. So far I found two of my comments from two years ago (how fast time goes by!).

    And as for you, more nostalgia: I miss your articles on Xfce a lot. I remember the long wait for Xfce 4.10. Every so often, you shared the latest news and updates with us. Right now I wonder what will happen with 4.12, when will it be, what will it bring again. I am very happy with my Xubuntu and Xfce 4.10, but I no longer have the craving for the new version.

    As always Elav, thank you so much for all the work that you, Gaara, and the other team members do. I really admire what they do and I hope they can continue to do it for much longer.

    See you soon,

      Hello Carlos-Xfce:

      I fully understand what you say. Sometimes I start reading the old SinceLinux articles and it makes me very nostalgic for how long we have walked, how many things have changed, well, for everything. The Courage thing, yes, a shame but that's life.

      Thank you for still being with us.
