Gnome As most of you will know, the GNOME team is hard at work on GNOME 3.0, the first major overhaul of the platform since 2002. The release of GNOME 3.0 was originally planned for March 2010, but it has now been pushed back for six months to September 2010.

It's happened before. They do something that has implications for the desktop side and then just don't put the effort in.


Yeap, and the worse part, it isn't just a small transition; it is a massive leap forward if they moved to libudev nice and cleanly. Ever since they introduced HAL it has been a downward spiral to craptacular problems. Fedora 11 has been the first version of Linux I have found that didn't royally suck since finally moving away from HAL when it comes to handling storage devices. Since moving away from HAL, it has been reliable and each move away from it has improved reliability with each release. Confirming, much to the denial of the HAL developer, than HAL was the single vector for all of life's problems.

Quite. To be honest I always found HAL a rather silly intermediary layer as udev now does everything that HAL sought to do pretty much.
