    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.

                        Just as one would expect, all he does is defending while on retreat. Do they still think that they'll soon rule the world with Gnome OS and 20% desktop market share?

                          It's the best desktop for you, and for some other people.

                          But it is not the best desktop for everyone, and THIS is the mistake GNOME is making. When millions of people do not like their decisions, they wage a war on users. That's silly.

                          I don't like any of the default desktop experiences, actually. Gnome Shell and Unity are simply awkward for me and I do not want to use my computer like that. I don't like the default KDE experience either, but the catch is that I can configure it to work exactly the way I want. And the way it should be. KDE got a lot of flack for attitudes like this, actually, when KDE 4 was first released. But they listened to the users and brought back the options people wanted.

                          If GNOME continues the current path, they will fade into obscurity. They've nuked more than half of their userbase in a span of a few years. That's not good management.

                            One thing I hate is how he talk's about working together on topic of GNOME OS and with all topics in common: he says nothing about it.
                            He allways says we, but not how working together on things(with other DE projects), epecially on things that were talked about in the topic GNOME OS : the things below GNOME. I think GNOME shoud try to work more together with KDE and such, a good example is the StatusNotifier stuff.

                            EDIT: Its a bit OT but his microphone was very silence.

                              I could only make it to 6 minutes when he started saying that the haters didn't give any specifics about why they hated it, and that maybe they hadn't even used it.

                              Dear Gnome A-holes, I fracking hate it, and I posted very specifics of why: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/archiv.../t-263609.html
