Hi to all,

I thank you all for your messages and now I better understood
the impact of this radical change in how application keep
settings. Was a good idea but only if I had made UNIX :-))),
now is to late for this change (I'm younger then UNIX :).

I wish you all happy coding,

Emanuel Dejanu

P.S. Please do not post any more on this topic. I have understood
that my recommendation was not good.

My opinion of the LSB's role seems to differ from yours.  In my
opinion the LSB exists to identify and standardize on best current
practice.  There is no industry precedence for using $HOME/.settings,
nor is there a move in that direction.  The LSB does not exist to
strong arm ISVs into doing things in accordance to the whims of any
one person.

If there is a strong technical reason that this change is absolutely
required for things like proper application co-existence, the LSB
should entertain the suggestion.

Cheers,

Matt
