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.

Indeed. I'm quite happy with where Gnome-shell is at the moment compared to it's predecessors at similar points in their respective lifecycles. The handful of niggles that do still bug me are easy enough to fix with extensions or a little custom scripting.

What I'm less amused with is the preoccupation some devs in Gnome and the other prominent projects have with building tablet UIs at the expense of desktop. Yeah, yeah, the bobbleheaded pundits have been blathering on about the post PC era and moving to tablets forever but really I wish they'd sit down, shut up, and focus on *this* reality until the pipe dreams come to pass.
