    It's about time! *pun intended*

          Sounds confusing. What's wrong with 'recent' = < 24 hours, 'this week' < 7*24 hours, 'this month', 'this year', 'this century'?

              How did they reinvent the wheel? This is literally an article about how, first, the Linux kernel had to add a syscall to expose this information, then Glib had to add a feature for integrating that syscall into the higher-level APIs it provides, and now Nautilus is finally adding a GUI for the Glib API for the kernel syscall.

              The only way this is reinventing the wheel is if you consider GNOME itself to be a reinvention of the wheel KDE built (which it technically is, being a "with blackjack and hookers" response to Qt's license at the time), or if you consider Linux's statx system call to be a reinvention of the wheel Windows built.

                What a great achievement. Windows is superior here, they did it more than 20 years ago...
                Hope linux in 10 years will be polished as Windows 10 now for end user then maybe it will be used more for desktops.

                  You should probably stop trying. You're not kidding anyone.


                  By commit

                  Red Hat (81.3%)

                  And for Gnome itself:

                  The GNOME project turned 23 this year, and despite equally persistent rumors to the contrary, it's still alive and kicking. Just how alive, though?

                    Look at Qt, they extend their control to the extreme (CLA, gate keeping the upstream). Look at the old Canonical (CLA, NIHing the platform). Red Hat could have done some really nasty things but chose not to. Instead GNOME is a highly functional Meritocracy. Endlessm controls glib, Endlessm is in charge of the GnomeOS stuff. Purism is on the verge of getting libhandy into GTK. Canonical and system76 is getting their design stuff into the shell. (Vanvugt just suggested to drop some extensions because it’s not worth it anymore).

                    Basically your conspiracy theory sucks.
                    It's just the reality of how it is. Whether you accept it or not is a different story.

                    First Gnome is a lot of NIH. Don't even dare to use that argument. Boxes, Epiphany and all these apps with a negligible market share have much better alternatives and in the end are wasting Gnome resources that could be used for maintenance and to give customization options to the rigid and lacking features DE that Gnome is.

                    Then Canonical had to NIH exactly because they don't have a say and design ideas (except for trivial stuff) are not accepted by the Red Hat dictatorship.
                    At some point, if you have a vision and can't exploit it because of a supposed community which is actually not one and where the dictator impose only its own ideas, you need to do your own stuff to materialize it. There is no other option left. Just like an employee will quit if he's never heard on a raise or on taking on a different role or responsibility. It's not meritocracy, it's about listening, delegating and letting in.
                    Unity was head and shoulders ahead of Gnome Shell in my opinion and it entirely and completely justified them going their own way. Now I'm sort of stuck with Gnome and it's a solid downgrade for me. Stuck because I prefer GTK and there's nothing else still maintained and ready in a modern paradigm. Unity is no more (maintained) and Budgie is almost there but not quite yet. The rest is Windows 95 paradigm, QT or else.

                    I really hope Canonical will come back to its own vision when they break even and have the financial means to invest once again in a desktop based on end users feedback (as Unity was). I trust their vision much more than Red Hat's, even if they have to NIH the hell out of that Gnome fake community.
