Re: Fedora Core 3 Wishlist

It would appear that on Jun 7, Raúl Moratalla did reply to a post I
	missed by  Ankit Malik who evidentially said:

My #1 wish: Please keep as many application "choices" as possible.

Who decides when an application is obsolete anyway?

Some would probably consider pine and mc to be obsolete,  but I have yet
to find any acceptable substitute for either of them. (I know that pine's
licensing precludes it from being included in the core distribution, I
use it only as an example good software that may not fit with the cutting
edge view of what to use...)

Why not give the user the chance to decide which software is obsolete?
Give them a selectable list of "traditional packages no longer
automatically installed" With a short description of what each package
does, and what "new" package is considered the functional replacement for it. 


My #2 wish: Is it possible to add a mouse timeout setting that would move
an inactive mouse cursor to [perhaps the fedora icon on the "panel"]
after a user selectable timeout period? 

Or to find some other way to prevent an inactive mouse cursor from
colliding with keyboard activated menu's... It's frustrating when I type
<alt-F1> and try to use the keyboard to navigate the resulting menu only
to have it bump into the forgotten mouse pointer, which interferes with
using the keyboard to complete the menu selection. The same thing occurs
within applications like ooffice or mozilla, IE I open the bookmarks
menu with <alt-B> only to be unable to select my fedoraSTUFF bookmark
folder without moving that dang rodent out of the way...
