    Phoronix: Proposal Raised For GNOME Software Labeling Its Carbon Cost / Environmental Impact

    While GNOME software may be free as in beer, at today's GUADEC 2020 annual GNOME developers conference there was a call that GNOME software should label their "embodied carbon cost" as part of collecting more data on the environmental impact of creating said software and working to reduce said impact...

    I feel like this is a direction that will ironically increase the carbon footprint of the GNOME Foundation.

      What are they teaching software developers in school these days??? It seems there is at least a 50/50 split between actual coding news/work and everything that gets in its way!

            Exactly. This is what GNOME is today.

            A never-complete project with serious visible flaws (not counting performance work), yet let's do something else and procrastinate until the end of time.

              How about labeling the carbon cost for all the stupid wokeness that has turned GNOME into a circus and that *causes* extra carbon emissions by frustrating its users?

                What about checking the carbon emissions for actually running the software itself, i.e. doing some serious performance profiling on GNOME itself?

                Why should I even care about how many seals GNOME developers are clubbing for each GNOME release? I care about the product, not if it is "ethically and organically sourced".

                    Bruh, I propose that to save us all, starting tomorrow the Gnome team should never leave their beds ever again.

                    That will drastically reduce their carbon footprint, and will save us from having to give a half arsed meh!.
