The GNOME Foundation Is Running Short On Money

    Laundering the money (gay lesbians? =woman? and coding? how about a program to import impotent arabs for coding purposes?) and claiming to be short on it. Not listening its users, building controverse technologies in its roots, employing a moron mole who called Linux hopeless. GNOME is the last thing I want to donate to. And its damn shame what the project has become. At least xfce, mate, e, kde, lxqt are going strong.

      gnome is a redhat business so they can give them some money They gain hundred of million each year, they are a big multinational company and then they ask poor users for donation!
      Trolling? Misinformed?

      Either way... check your facts before making a fool of yourself!

        Why is it ok to bankrupt a non-profit foundation with a sexist program? Imagine the outrage if this was for males instead of females...

        The least the interns could have done with the funding is add customization options to gnome3.

          I think people will resume donating money to the Gnome foundation when they resume development of an *actual* desktop environment.

          Hopefully Gnome will die off. Then we can rename Mate back to Gnome and carry on our merry way

            You clearly don't know what social justice is if you're equivocating it with free software.

            You have some reading to do. Apply yourself.

            In what way? Explain yourself "dude".

              You're very misinformed about what social justice is if you're equivocating it with free software.

              I think you'll find you're wrong. See, I can make statements without giving argument too, "dude".

                  It used to be for Desktop Environment, not for Swedish utopias of Karen Sandler, CEO

                  Then it was successful. Gnome Shell nonsense came together with this moronic social so-caled "useful idiots", spreading the ideas, that nobody wanted to listen to.

                  If you are asking users for donation to the DE, you are not spending it on utopias.

                  If you spend - ask your utopias to pay you back. The same result it would have trying to train monkeys to code, pigs to fly, planes to swim and sexual revoution to improve the Desktop Environment.

                  Sex has nothing to do here. Idiot CEO - yes. Not listening to the users - yes. Gnome Shell - yes.

                      I used to use Gnome up until version 2. The latest one, for one reason or another, I do not like. KDE all the way - I'm glad Fedora has the KDE spins.

                        I've been a gnome user all my life. It worked fine, it looked fine, and it followed some how the kiss principle.

                        I've been using gnome 3 until 3.8 and it's "well, ok, I can stand it" with some extensions. But after 3.10 I can't stand it no more. A centralized indicator? Headerbars? Fuck everything, I'll use elementaryOs, I somehow hope they could throw away that headerbar shit - I don't really understand why they need to gain vertical space for an application that is not maximized. I can't believe anymore that "it's the new desktop concept" argument anymore, it's just convergence for tablet users and they haven't learn anything from the Windows 8 dissaster.

                        And what's that non sense program for women? It's not like there arent many tech-women because of any disadvantage over men, they simply don't want to. They shouldn't spend software donations on something that's not software.

                        Sorry for my bad English.

                          gnome-shell is a very small part of the stack maintained by the GNOME developers. Mate depends on a lot of GNOME libraries/applications and is moving towards using more of the current stack. It's only intended to be a minimal fork of the UX parts they want to change, not everything.

                            That's why if there are no clear goals you donate for, you simply don't donate.
                            Two - stay away from organizations involved with non-statute affairs.

                            Also, what message CEOs of Mozilla and Gnome F. sent out recently? That hiring a woman requires extra sanity checks!

                              Lol sorry to tell you man but the developers at elementaryOS love headerbars. I agree with you about the sexism. I didn't realize that women were somehow deficient and needed "outreach"; I had assumed they were just as competent and capable as men when it came to programming. At least this effort didn't cause them to go bankrupt...

                                Let Gnome die, they shit on the entire community.
                                KDE is the most advanced distro now, and they are making Wayland happen.
                                Don't like how heavy it is? you can turn off desktop effects and slim it up.
                                That's the beauty of linux. if you aren't using it it dosen't run.

                                Everyone needs to get behind one distro to make it dominant. The other flavors will catch up in due time. Wayland benefits everyone.

                                All this fragmentation is the reason linux dosent move forward. Choice is a convienient excuse to stroke ego...it does nothing to help Linux.
                                One completely dominant distro is needed to get all the players focused. Ubuntu almost had it before they shoved Unity down our throats.
