Give us our Linux!: Mailbag
Mailbag: Give us our Linux!3:24 /
This week, you're all on the same feedback page. And that page is called "Linux." Plus, Auto-Incorrect returns!
Hello, everyone! I�m Molly Wood and welcome to the CNET Mailbag, the show where you send me your feedback about the things we do here at CNET and sometimes it�s like you�re all thinking the same thing at once. And this week, that thing was LINUX. I�m starting to sense a theme. For example, JC wrote in and said: Why no Linux news? Or will that get you folks in trouble? Who would we get in trouble with? Meanwhile, James said: Please Molly! Please Molly! Please Molly! Please! More LINUX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And Brandon says: Hello Molly Wood, Just that I would say I love the show and it is super funny and I do not miss a single episode!!! Why thank you. And then he goes on: And I have a request to pass on the the Download.com team... Can you please add a Linux section if you can? That�s a good idea about the Linux section. I asked the folks in charge of Download.com and they said they�ve definitely talked a lot about adding a Linux section, and it�s on the list of things to do. Not sure when it�s going to happen, but at least it�s on the list. We�ll try to keep sprinkling in Linux videos here at CNET TV, as well. Ok, moving on, an update to last week�s Lovermail episode. Ross wasn�t alone in expressing this opinion. He says: On the new Lovermail Edition, I was very disappointed that no one had any love for Natali. She is extremely smart and funny and adds so much personality to ever show she's on. More Natali please!!! See, it was all a clever trick to get tons of lovermail for Natali rolling in. And it WORKED. Not so for me, though. Chris says: What's gone wrong with your dress sense? Is Tom dressing you in his old drapes? Please, please return to your original clothes. My original clothes? Hm. I wonder where I�m keeping those � anyway, thanks for the feedback, Chris. I like my clothes. And now, for a little auto-incorrect. Carrick says: I was replying to my sister in-law today regarding when I would be down to see her. I typed out "I would hope to be down there before neorealist." I meant to type "noon"... Of course. Noon. Neorealist. Happens all the time. I think maybe your phone is in grad school. And Jeff from London has this one: I messaged a friend of mine to ask him what time we our meeting was the next day, and I received the following ... "9 or 9.30 I rhino mare" Seems the words "think mate" were a little complex for his phone :) Clearly. And finally, another new segment, since this just keeps happening. Mail for Andy Rooney. Maria from Canada says: To Andy Rooney, I saw your piece on Kitchen gadgets and I admit that I am a gadget junky. You showed two crinkle cutters that I've been looking for. I have one, but I use it so much, it will need replacing at some point. Let me know if you can spare one and send it to me. Does Andy Rooney send people stuff? I had no idea. That seems to be the bulk of his mail. At least ... his mail that I get. I don�t know why. But I like it. And that�s it for this week, everyone! Keep the feedback and questions coming!
