    Phoronix: Vincent Untz Goes Over The Direction Of GNOME

    Aside from all the Phoronix video recordings of the X.Org and Wine development rooms during the FOSDEM 2013 meeting last weekend in Brussels, Vincent Untz went over the direction of GNOME and whether the GNOME community has gone crazy...

    Couldn't take more than the first 7 minutes, he's basically debunking the "myth" that Gnome 3 is bad, with the same old silly half truths: people don't like new things, people are emotional, yada yada, a demagogy based on half truths and euphemisms with the usual reasons from the Gnome camp: it's not Gnome 3, it's the users who "don't get it".

    Kk and thanks.

    I wont then bother to watch a second of that moaning.

    I am very very happy with Gnome 3. It is the best desktop.

    Edit: I just realized after reading second time your post that he was pro Gnome 3 lol.

    mark45: Thanks for giving us the executive summary. I was slightly interested, but not interested enough to watch a video. (I prefer things in text form where it's easier to skim.)

    Okay, let the holy wars commence! I feel we should have some sort of opening ceremony for these GNOME threads..

    EDIT: While I was posting, someone snuck in and started the holy war.

    the desktop is dead
    Yea, the tablet/smartphone marketers keep saying that, who the hell cares what they think?
    Besides, why couldn't they create a version for the desktop and a separate version for tablets/smartphones? (like KDE)

    gnome developers hate the world
    No, GNOME developers hate the traditional desktop users.

    the community wanted to change
    I guess me and many others weren't considered as being part of the community.
    Now I'm sure as hell not part of the GNOME 3 community.

    Just about then I stopped watching the video.

    Code:
    the desktop is dead
    Today I tried for the first time iCrap (iPad). After a while I wanted a better keyboard.

    I don't want to type on some freaking glass panel for fucks sake.
