Gnome In a recent interview with the Austrian newssite derStandard.at, GNOME designer Jon McCann talks about GNOME OS, the consequences of Canonical leaving GNOME behind, the purported removal of features and the future role of Linux distributions. "I think there was a time when GNOME had kind of a crisis, we didn't know where we wanted to go, we were lacking goals and vision - that was the end of the GNOME2 cycle. So we pulled together and formed a vision where we want to go - and actually did something about it. And now we have been marching on that plan for quite some time."

One of the architects of the current vision that Gnome is following feels that everything is hunky dory...

A lot of other people are feeling the exact opposite. With a more pessimistic outlook every day.

I wonder if gnome would be a lot stronger if his defined "crisis" extended till today?
