I support a fork. I had my own one-night-long fork of GNOME "Fallback Mode" called EXDE before the gin worked its way out of my system and I remembered I like doing games, not desktop software. If only I were a multi-millionaire like Shuttleworth, then I could pay a bunch of people to make my pet OS too.
No announcement yet.
