...or use PCManFM instead of Thunar, because mtp support is built in. I found it automatically mounted a phone filesystem.
Which version of PCManFM?
Cause I've installed the one from the #! repositories, 0.9.10, and it does not mount my Nexus 5 MTP filesystem... it does mount the PTP Camera though...

I like their podcast, I'm 100% sure that I'll like the magazine and I like their purpose of giving back to the community. Definetly, these guys rocks!
By the way, I'm proud that the community of my distro, starting from the lead and creator, is supporting this campaign. ]:D
Linux desktop/laptops aren't common because:
a) No one cares. I can ssh and run VMs from my Windows machines just fine at work. There's really zero incentive for people like me to try and convert co-workers to *nix users or plead with management.
b) The small segment of people like myself who do care about OS choice enough to use gnu/linux, can figure out how to paste stuff into a terminal. We also know to check for hardware compatibility before investing in hardware. My Linux machines do everything I want them to and more. I have zero complaints in regards to hardware and software support for GNU/Linux and if I had my druthers, I'd almost prefer that less people use *nix so that the security and interface developement doesn't shift its focus.
c) No one advertises desktop linux machines. People won't buy something if it's unfamiliar and offers no obvious benefit to them. Most consumers just want to get on facebook and write English papers and stuff, not pimp out an IDE. Supporting Linux for average end users just isn't a smart investment for businesses.
I totally agree with each sigle word you've said here!
I've been using this awesome distro for about a month, so far so good... actually, better than that, I was a former Ubuntu user for about 3 years, mainly "end user" use, I'm not a programmer neither I have a lot of knowledge about this stuff, so it just made sense to me to switch form the dark side to Linux running a distro that could ease that process... but I felt some time ago that I needed to go to the next step, dig deeper onto my system and increase my knowledge, so I did my research and realized that #! was my best fit. I gave it a shot on a VM and totally loved it! So I changed my main system to #! and, as I told before, doing great
Besides installing it as my main system, I've been reading the forum to helping me out fixing some minor issues and I managed to fix them, and I've been hanging out on the IRC channels of #! and it's totally deserve the reputation you guys have of being a very friendly community, so i decided join it and here I am. Hopefully I would be able to give back and contribute to grow this great distro.
Thanks guys and see you around
