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.

I'm bullish on GNOME, more so than KDE.

I think Vala, GObject, and GObject introspection is their key to success on the developer front. Invest more in that.

They need a novel platform and to enable a pit of success for the Desktop Linux, meaning out of the box things should just work. I'd even go as far as to try to ink an OEM deal for a "GnomeBox" with hardware and peripherals known to work well with Gnome.

Oh, and they need a proper app store. Leave it up to the ISVs to maintain it, it'll open up a ton of resources not being used maintaining extensive repositories.
