GNOME Is Still A Ways Off From 10% Goal
Phoronix: GNOME Is Still A Ways Off From 10% Goal
For those that don't remember, the GNOME project had a goal of a 10% global desktop share by 2010, this was their "10x10" goal. Two years later, they're still a long way off...
Why you are saying that? I think that their campaign to get 0% user share is very successful.
Well trolled Michael. Well trolled indeed.
That was funny, but also slightly sad cause there's truth in it.

I'll never understand why Michael spends so much time telling others how badly they've failed to meet their goals.
Why doesn't he write an article about how OpenBenchmarking.org hasn't met its goals? He thought it'd be huge. Instead, you could ask 49999/50000 people on the planet about it, and they'd say "what's OpenBenchmarking?"
For that matter, they'd say "What's Phoronix?"

Feeding from the flames
Phoronix is the most flame fueled linux site on this planet. And we cant have flames without triggering head lines. So please just accept this.
Then lets move on to the subject. GNOME failing its goal. Well since the linux desktop is failing hard it means that every desktop is failing. It is fair to point at GNOME since it is the biggest and best linux desktop. Im looking forward to testing betas for the coming spring distribution releases. IMO GNOME is getting quite good and version 3.4 looks even better.
Those who want the workflow of win95 can go with KDE. The stability is about the same as win95 also.
Not-for-profits/volunteer organisations should be held to the same scrutiny. Well ones that want to be taken seriously...

Michael only really picks on GNOME.
And honestly, who doesn't these days? Their desktop is like a special needs kid, except it actually is their fault that it's so retarded, so you don't have to feel guilty about ridiculing it. I kind of what play dodgeball with it, just for the lulz.
Eventually, the kid will either end up curled up in the fetal position so that you feel like a giant asshole, or s/he'll end up impervious to your attacks. Either way, you end up feeling mean and/or retarded yourself, so find something better to do with your time/energy.
