Like we really need one more thing sticking in our faces that will only be used once over the life of the installation!

Gnome configuration editor / desktop / gnome / accessibility / keyboard / enable (unselect)

And it's gone!

Sticking these stupid things in everyone's face makes as much sense as allocating 6% of all parking spaces as handicapped zones at an ice rink with parking for a thousand cars! Gimme a freaking break!

I love Gnome and hate KDE but this kind of crap is a huge negative for Gnome even if it gives the feel-gooders a momentary rush. So does your dog when it's on the couch licking itself..

I'm all for it. I'd hate to be using a wheelchair or be on crutches, want to go to the rink to hang out with friends or watch someone perform, and have to park far away because there aren't enough accessible parking spaces. Plus, you've seen basketball wheelchair teams. There's gonna be a wheels-on-ice team someday, if there ain't already.
