Red Hat "We see the desktop as only a piece of the entire operating system product; integration must extend beyond the desktop. We also believe that users care most about functionality and integration rather than the underlying technology. For these reasons, we have created a single desktop look and feel for Red Hat Linux rather than maintaining two unrelated configurations." Very good stuff over there from Owen Taylor, the Red Hat Desktop Team member.

say no to comercialism
by George on Mon 16th Sep 2002 09:05 UTC

i am not a friend of redhat nor am i a friend of the comercialism of the gnome desktop and no, i am no kde user.

3 years ago:

- kde 1, 2000 users
- gnome 1, 2000 users

today:

- kde 3, 3500 users
- gnome 2, 500 users

gnome is definately not doing the right job otherwise they don't loose so many people every day. gnome will normalize again when companies like sun, redhat and ximian go and care for their own crappy stuff without itching their nose into other people's work. working for gnome today is like beeing a free co-operate worker for sun, redhat or ximian. so basically no one who cas 200gr. brain in his head will contribute to gnome. contribute to gnome today and see your software slaughtered by the big companies for money tommorow. you people should investigate into slashdot and the gnome mailinglist, after the official gnome 2 announcement a shitload of people rant and complain about gnome.

thats pure fact.
