The only thing I've noticed recently is that I get an annoying message whenever I sign in to my Yahoo mail account saying that the new version of Yahoo mail hasn't been tested with my operating system. Aside from having to click an extra link, it hasn't caused me any grief.

In general, I think it best to give as little incidental or unintentionally disclosed information about yourself as possible, whether in cyberspace or meatspace. Why should a web site need to know what operating system I'm running, and in particular, what distribution? It may not hurt me to disclose that information, but I see no reason for volunteering it unless it is necessary.



Do you happen to know what the icon is for IBM OS/2, and what I need to put in the useragent string to cause it to be displayed?

I don't think OS/2 is covered at the moment - it's still in the testing phase. I believe Jeremy will look to expand the number of icons available if he decides to keep it.

I have to say that this is indeed a pretty nice feature.

Kind regards,

Eric

242 posts and nearly 5 months. I really can't believe there is anything more to say in this thread yet people keep posting.

For the first time ever I'm going to unsubscribe to a thread I started.

repo, please stop testing in this thread as every person who posted gets a notification. There's a thread specifically for testing and the feature has been tested well enough that it demonstrably works. Thanks.

My last post in this thread *explicitly* asks not to test here.
