Gnome Something's - once again - brewing within the GNOME project. While a mere suggestion for now, and by no means any form of official policy, influential voices within the GNOME project are arguing that GNOME should become a full-fledged Linux-based operating system, and that the desktop environment should drop support for other operating systems such as Solaris and the BSDs. I have a feeling this isn't going to go down well with many of our readers.

When Ubuntu announced unity, a shell competing with gnome-shell, everybody was complaining about more options. Now everyone is complaining about less options. Maybe someone should write an article that gnome is not changing in any way so that everybody could be happy.. I doubt.. ;)

They released budget figures yesterday here in New Zealand, and since both left and right-wing parties are unhappy, I figure the government has it about right.

And I think you'll find the same is true with UI design... the best you can do is balance the number of unhappy people at both ends of the spectrum...
