A pleasant surprise…

Yesterday, when taking the screen grab for my post on Quanta Plus, I did the Alt + Print Screen shuffle as usual. However, when I did so, I was greeted with a dialogue box asking me where I wanted to store the PNG file that was to be produced and what I wanted to call it. The operation was as swish as that. In Windows, the screenshot gets stuffed into the clipboard for you to extricate it with your graphics editor of choice so this was an interesting surprise. It’s the sort of thing that can make a good impression and it is striking that Linux seems to be ahead of Windows on this one. Who said Linux was less than user friendly?
