Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

The way that GNOME is currently built and tested has major limitations. Our automatic build systems are rudimentary and they don’t allow us to do automated testing.

Is this the 1980s?

We are setting out to correct this situation as a part of GNOME OS. Work is already underway to create a new build system for GNOME.

Lets invent a new build system, instead of use the 1000s already out there.

Gnome is a joke.
