Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

Programming specifications are not real IP, they do not require a skilled author and a creative process. They are simple facts.

You must be new to the game? Programming specifications are written by someone - implicating copyright - which is IP. Also, documenting how a technology you licensed from a 3rd party works, giving insight to it's internals, is not only IP infingmenet (they literally copied something from someone else), it certainly is a blatant licence violation. Or do you really think no NDA's were involved when licensing such technology? Therefor, releasing ANY information without explicit permission of the 3rd parties will be an IP violation. Like it or not.
