Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y And over the weekend, the saga regarding Canonical, GNOME, and KDE has continued. Lots of comments all over the web, some heated, some well-argued, some wholly indifferent. Most interestingly, Jeff Waugh and Dave Neary have elaborated on GNOME's position after the initial blog posts by Shuttleworth and Seigo, providing a more coherent look at GNOME's side of the story.

Ubuntu's direction...

I think the next releases of Ubuntu will be challenging. This is going to be the proof of fire Ubuntu will face. Delivering Unity will estrange many users. I feel it already. GNOME Shell will also estrage many users. The scenario will be most of us stuck with GNOME 2.x series to wait and see what happens next. Perhaps then we will see a rethinking from both Canonical and GNOME community and how division made a harm to Linux as a desktop. Not counting the ego wars we've been reading for some time now. Thanks to OSNews, we know this.
