Thanks again, Murray!

Read this while skimming a sneak preview of Ubuntu 7.10:

"Note, by the way, how differently open-source projects present themselves to end users: Compare the release notes for Gnome 2.20 to the release notes for OpenOffice 2.3, and then tell me which group looks more serious about communicating clearly with the user base."

Comments like this would simply not have happened without Murray's hard work. I'm sure I didn't read anything like this about the 2.18 release notes. The bar, it has been raised...

I agree with you. and even Firefox would benefit heavily from clearly understandable release notes, leaving bug list for advanced users and developers to check out.

Murray just owns this market (with his team, of course) :)
