Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

The Matrix is the ultimate in skeuomorphism.


Hmmm... I think technically the "matrix" would be more simulation than skeuomorphism. Though I guess you could consider the matrix skeuomorphic from the point of view of the agents, in that killing someone in the matrix is basically a skeuomorphic interface for killing someone in the real world.

Hm, or maybe it's especially not skeuomorphic for the agents - for them, matrix was the only reality (but generally, the silliness of "you die in the matrix, you die in real world" - our minds can routinely survive such, in dreams; yes, there might be some mechanism enhancing the effects ...but it would be stupid not to block it on the vessels of freed humans)
