    Phoronix: GNOME OS Is Taking Shape But Its To Serve For Testing The Desktop

    The virtual GNOME conference kicked off today, GUADEC 2020, and one of the talks was focused on running "GNOME OS" on real hardware...

    Oh yes, the desktop in where it comes broken by default and you have to fix it (and sometimes needing obscure extensions which will break the next month).

    KDE had Neon for ages!

      We already have Fedora for that. The effort going into duplicating work (the bane of linux ecosystems) could go into actual work on the desktop itself. It's been in pre-alpha for 9 years.

        If they have any beta versions and if it's easy set up in a virtualized system, I'd love to check it out. It'd be nice to see what's coming down the pipeline before the other distros get it.

            Surprised that tildearrow didn't catch that one.

              I think this is for even more bleeding-edge testing...

                tildearrow It’s basically release engineering. Codethink got people working on this, a few distributors also got resources working on this. GnomeOS might be a talking point but the real work happens in buildstream and here https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-build-meta Be aware this is real engineering and can’t be replaced by weekly blogs or smart people on forums trash talking about “broken by design”.

                  I bet you want GNOME OS to replace all distributions in existence. Heck, perhaps even rename it to 144Hz OS.

                  Working? Show me the work on fixing UX?

                    tildearrow My opinion doesn’t matter. Your opinion doesn’t matter. I’m just pointing out the fact that only GNOME are blessed with Buildstream and Codethink people to do some decent release engineering.
