    And you please stop turning every thread into a pro-GNOME propaganda garbage!

      I don't see any kind of propaganda here.

          Then you haven't seen 144Hz's posts. He keeps calling GNOME "upstream" and the rest of desktops "downstreams".
          He talks way too positively about GNOME and Red Hat.
          Every time GNOME is mentioned, he automatically early birds the thread up.
          And when we disturb his fanboy-ism, he goes "y'all are off-topic" on us.

            I can't speak for 144Hz's general behaviour as I haven't been paying attention to it, however his initial comment is technically correct. The GNOME team are the source of the GNOME desktop environment. It's common in Open Source to refer to them as "upstream" (just like Firefox & Linux are both upstream).

            Debian are "downstream" from GNOME, Firefox and Linux. Any improvements made to those 3 pieces of software from their source (upstream) float down the river towards Debian (downstream) where Debian can benefit from them. Ubuntu is based and continually re-based off of Debian, so they are further still downstream. If Debian applies patches (to fix/improve) GNOME, Firefox or Linux then Ubuntu can benefit from those patches also.

            Like 144Hz, I too like it when companies like Canonical go to the effort of doing work on the upstream source software so that not only do they (Canonical) benefit from it (when their upstream work eventually reaches them downstream), but all the other downstream receivers benefit too (which includes other distros and ultimately the end users of the distros).
