Interesting Gnome sorting


Here's something interesting that I thought was interesting and took my interest because it was interesting. If you click About on the Help menu in applications written for the Gnome desktop environment and click Credits you can view the people who wrote the program which is pretty cool, but you'll notice they're ordered by first name not surname.

I thought that was highly interesting, didn't you?

This should really have been formatted as a Fun Fact.
