    The "bad things" for GNOME they pointed out was their focus on the traditional desktop [...]

    Seems that some people never learn for their past mistakes...

    Despite the rocky start I think KDE and Unity are the best bets moving forward. However, now that Qt is LGPL(has been for a long time) and has an open governance model, I really would like to see a desktop environment take it seriously other than KDE.
    Well, there's Razor-qt...

    I really agree with you!

    Theres http://razor-qt.org/ but its developement sems to go slowly...
    And its a pre-Qt5 and pre-Qml.

    QML for desktop widgets and other stuff would be nice, and not that hard to implement (KDE4 has to made the whole Plasma desktop think for the widgets).

    I hope Razor-Qt would pick-up Qt5 new features and make it a good desktop.

    I admit i havent read the slides, as I am using my smartphone, but I did read this in the article

    As a plan, they want more GNOME 3, more focus on mobile, and GNOME as an operating system / Linux distribution.
    The "more focus on mobile" was what I was referring to

    Though if it's not in the slides, then I guess I'm mistaken... but gnome 3 really does feel like theyre trying too much to focus on getting a smartphone-style experience on the desktop (which doesnt work)

    Make no little plans.
    They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will not themselves be realized.

    I thought somethink like that before I read the slides, so why do you say they are not in touch with the reality, they even dont belive that their plans are realistik but they think that its better to have big plans and realize only a port of it instead having only small plans.


    So maybe you did not read the slides carefully or you just want to flame them...

    and naturaly most of the readers of your text did not read the slides so they just belive this...

    dont like that methods...

    My thoughts exactly. These guys really need to rethink their priorities. Many old users of gnome 2 decided to skip on gnome 3 in favor of other environments like KDE. Developers are leaving their team too, yet they want a 20% market share by 2020? Even if Linux got tha market share, the desktop environment of choice most probably wont be gnome, if they keep heading in the same direction theyre heading now.

    They truly lack a sense of direction, in my opinion

    The 20x20 slide was obviously a joke... sigh at another Phoronix GNOME article.
