No, sorry, I have enough workload with the other projects I'm involved in and it isn't something I have any experience or interest in.
You refusing to install 2 does not mean 2 does not work.
You not liking 1.3 does not mean 1.3 does not work.
You said there is no version of Deluge that works on all modern OSes. This is untrue. There are two versions of Deluge that work on all modern OSes.
As I previously stated, they have not stepped up an become part of the Deluge team.
Also, you're saying that as if Deluge was a Debian project which the non-Linux people are free to build from source if they feel like it. The Deluge homepage brags front and center that Deluge is cross-platform and that 2.x is available for Linux, macOS and Windows - that's just misleading and it has been like that for a while.
What is misleading? Can you run Deluge 2 on Linux? yes. On OSX? yes. Windows? Yes. Does it require installation? yes. Is that normal? yes. Do some OSes have less polished installers? Yes. Is that normal? Yes -- only this time it's not Linux with the short end of the stick.
I'm going to have to disagree here. One thing is knowing that Linux (and Git) was named after Linus (which is obvious to pretty much software developers but very few of "computer users", which could use the forum), but the other thing is the phrasing:
Well the answer to that question in my case is KDE Neon and it's not named after a person, so it already doesn't make sense.
KDE Neon is neither an operating system, nor a distro. It's a Desktop Environment. That's like stating your favorite breakfast food is 'spoon', and then complaining that a question about 'which breakfast food is made out of flat flakes of corn, commonly eaten out of a bowl with milk?' makes no sense. Is your favorite car 'steering wheel'? Your favorite actor 'makeup'? Again, I grant that including 'distribution' in the captcha could be confusing -- but you are taking a right turn here.
So people are supposed to make the mental leap of translating the question to "What truthful answer that someone might possibly give to the above question would be a name of a project named after a person".
No, they are supposed to make the 'mental leap' to 'which operating system or distribution is named after a person?' I already granted that 'distribution' makes it unclear, as there are several distributions named after people which should also be accepted as answers -- but in your entire rant you have named only 3 OSes (4 if you count OSX/MacOS as two different things), and as previously mentioned the process of elimination can get you to one pretty quick, even if you do not know the answer, and refuse to google it.
Ok, let's think about that, the answers that come to my mind are OSX | Windows | Ubuntu | Arch | Gentoo | Mint | ... and to my knowledge neither of those are named after a person.
Even though you have *repeatedly* mentioned three operating systems above, now -- you are now refusing to admit you can think of three operating systems? It should also be noted you now seem to be admitting 'KDE' is a nonsense answer in the first place...
Rephrasing that to "Which operating system was named after that Torvalds guy" would be much more straightforward, would offer the same amount of protection against spambots and still wouldn't be an adequate question for the job. It's not about gatekeeping people based on their knowledge of the Linux lore, just making sure the forums aren't spammed by bots.
I already agreed that the phrasing could be better, but again, you are blurring the line between poor phrasing, and esoteric knowledge. I'd say you would have a much stronger point, if your point did not require you pretending you do not know of a third major operating system (or even what an operating system/distro is) -- which you had already referenced multiple times. It seems like you are stretching now to say that you can't think of an operating system beyond OSX and Windows, when this entire thread is based on complaining that the three major desktop operating systems have different installation curves for the major Deluge versions.
