    Miguel who?

      In my opinion, the Linux desktop wouldn't be as fragmented, weren't it for the Gnome shell and Unity.
      Partially he is to blame.

        Not even one of the founders can stand GNOME

          I've read little about/by him. However, everytime I did, he seemed to come off as a conceited ass.

            And the KDE founder Matthias Ettrich doesn't use KDE, and you can be sure that Mark Shuttleworth uses a Mac instead of Ubuntu/Unity when he's not in the public.

                Love the ignorant drivel being posted here... blaming Miguel for all the things they hate about Gnome 3, even though he's had little to do with the project for nearly a decade...

                  See, "fragmentation" is a good thing. At least we have the choice now. I couldn't care less if that means that there'll never be the Year of the Linux Desktop.

                    Miguel, Thanks for Midnight Commander. I hope someone is going to maintain it. I have never found any use for Moonlight.

                      Good riddance

                      Miguel is a douchebag, instrumental in pushing gnome towards GTK and away from GNUStep then the bastard runs off to Mac OSX/Cocoa anyway. Linux could have had the OSX APIs by now if gnome had chosen gnustep/objective-c over GTK.
