I think we agreed to use Ubuntu using the "Silver theme" but it works in most other distros or
there is one very similar and even Mac and Windows have similar themes.
Using an OpenSource platform meant people could get on with the work without spending months and
endless discussions about Eulas and potentially paying for specialist lawyers to guess at what MS
or Apple might do if they felt LibreOffice started to threaten their dominance or profits. David,
Alex and i had some of that joy in other lists but managed to settle things down eventually.
When starting a new topic please write a new email and copy&paste the address into the "To" field
rather than just clicking on "Reply to" and changing the subject-line. Most of us did the wrong
way at first too and i have only just worked out how to fix it when other people do. So, don't
worry about it. It's good to have someone new in the team :)

Being a new boy to the team, I thought I would contribute
to this little discussion.
In my opinion it should be "how to" and "read me". This
would help people who do not have English as their first
language. I have had experience of computer terms causing
confusion with people who English language knowledge is
limited. Also using "how to" and "read me" will help during
translation in these modern times now that translation
software is used.
There are several other customs, phrases or words that
should not be used, but listing those will take some thought
