Gnome During his opening speech at the GNOME Developers conference GUADEC Jono Bacon, community manager for the Ubuntu distribution, called for a common vision inside the project, an area in which the project as a whole is currently lacking. Only a few hours later Red Hat developers Havoc Pennington and Bryan Clark presented their own proposal for a reinvention of the Open Source desktop: The GNOME Online Desktop. My take: As I have been saying for a long time, GNOME needs a vision (and leaders) for the future. I'm glad that people are finally stepping up.

Bin playing with Linux for years and gave up Microsoft for SuSE three years ago.

Ended up running mostly Ubuntu on my machines.

Bought a Mac Mini out of curiosity a month ago to see what all the fuss was about.

Now I know. What a pleasure! And plenty of excellent free stuff or cheap shareware if you know where to look for it.

And you're quite right.

But unfortunately I don't think it'll ever happen. Too many people running in different directions.

So it goes...
