They should be configurable. It's all very well saying that messages like "Ouch" and "Sorry" add to the character, but the fact is that they make software feel unprofessional. The messages should retain standard text such as "OK" as the default setting, but have a preferences setting where the alert messages can be switched to "fun" mode, where the more childish responses would be displayed.

personal preference i guess, but i think it shows that it was programmed by people that were enjoying themselves.
First time somebody i installed linux for saw some similar requester he said: well at least they were having fun making this.

Maybe it even makes people actually read the requester instead of clicking 'ok' as fast as possible to get rid of it.(as i usually do on windows). But it shouldn't be overdone, just some of the requesters that pop up very rarely like; fatal error, syntax error, reboot now,software failure, etc..

Ben Hermans, the AmigaOS4 project manager, recently informed me that the new USB stack for AmigaOS4 already works with Highway and Subway USB controllers.


This is also good news, and I'm glad to see it.  There was debate over this a month or two ago.  Good to see a compliant stack that works with both.

I strongly disagree!! The messages are fine, they just need to be localised. Why not be different? Did you dislike GURU? Well I mean I know you did not like to get visited by the GURU, but it was more unique than "software failure".


Now there's a good point.  The requester information buttons should be localized to what the end user wants... same with the "software failure"... gotta have that Guru Meditation back!
