Because I totally agree with what Colin wrote about PA here :

I don't know anything about the "normal desktop user". I don't even know if
he exists. That's why I wrote "I think", it is simply my opinion, and
obviously it differs from yours! So what?

I don't force anybody to use PA and I'd never do that! You ever heard that
"linux is about choice"? If you don't like what your current distro offers
you, get another. If none of the hundreds of distros gives you what you
want, build your own. Nobody forces you to use PA!

Congratulations! But once again, I've just been talking about personal
experiences that are contrary to that of other users. So what exactly is
your point here?

Seems like I have to repeat myself: if you don't want to use PA, than don't
use it! If you don't use it, you don't have to pay!

It's kind of scary to receive such an offensive response after doing nothing
but giving some positive feedback to some guys that imho are doing a good
job. You really should accept the idea that other people like things that
you don't like! And you also should realise that you are NOT "forced" to use
any open source software! That'll make your live a little bit easier...
