Greatest idea ever! I remember going warwalking with the laptop running in my rucksack, logging GPS-position and access points. Nice of you notice at home that the device has been sleeping all the time (didn't happen to be, I've been using KDE ever since I started using linux).
Technicaly itīs a genious work. see gnome3.0 as a framwork, as git is like a filesystem. But you can use the gnome 2.28 build or the last build thats coming soon for another half year or even longer. give gnome a bit time. the point why I donīt agree (at least yet) was that kde 4.0 wasnt not even really stable and slow... that you canīt say about gnome 3.0. they come naturaly more features and maybe some design changes but to say itīs a fail because you are not willing to look over your horizon is a bit selfcentric conservative standing which I do not like much.
Like when you say to someone linux is free and has no viruses and such stuff, and they say to you but its different so it cant be good, I am used to use windows so nothing else can be good.
_ epic fail _
What if you have a really shaky WiFi connection and a 17" laptop like me?
Am I supposed to walk around with the lid open just to keep it from suspending?
I see how this will bring better support for suspend/resume on many laptops, but I think a lot more will just look for a way to disable suspend instead.
Linux is all about customization and not having to feel locked out, but on the contrary this is exactly what they do here. This decision simply doesn't really have the Linux feel to it.
Well thats dumb?
