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.

These people have a vision

They always have a vision. Every year in fact. Nothing ever happens.

This GnomeOS has been talked about for years, and in many ways it's already here because Gnome is effectively Linux-only now anyway.

You hear stuff like 10x10 (10% of the desktop market by 2010) and various other things (I think they even had a 20x20) and they just don't happen. Self-congratulating echo chamber I believe it was called.
