Gnome In a recent interview with the Austrian newssite derStandard.at, GNOME designer Jon McCann talks about GNOME OS, the consequences of Canonical leaving GNOME behind, the purported removal of features and the future role of Linux distributions. "I think there was a time when GNOME had kind of a crisis, we didn't know where we wanted to go, we were lacking goals and vision - that was the end of the GNOME2 cycle. So we pulled together and formed a vision where we want to go - and actually did something about it. And now we have been marching on that plan for quite some time."

Integration is not only quality packages, it is mor about the specific custom tools for that particular system. Users would really appreciate if there are GUI tools for changing all the aspects of the system, which are able to change specific lines of the specific config files in specific locations. This would be the total enemy of the universal software but it is the only way to win the users.

So the purpose built software for a single integrated linux distro is the key. Thats what I believe GNOME OS is about.
