Gnome "At the GNOME Developer Experience Hackfest in Brussels, the GNOME developer community has tackled the problem of specifying a canonical development language for writing applications for the GNOME desktop. According to a blog post by Collabora engineer and GNOME developer Travis Reitter, members of the GNOME team are often asked what tools should be used when writing an application for the desktop environment and, up until now, there has been no definitive answer. The team has now apparently decided to standardise on JavaScript for user-facing applications while still recommending C as the language to write system libraries in." Discuss.

Stand by while Gnome slowly reinvents QML.

I'm currently a gnome 3 use (works great on new Ubuntu), but their "anything but Qt" adventure is starting to look old already.

Why can't they just use QML? After all it's a language, and not something bound to Qt only.

By reinventing QML I mean creating the toolkit bindings and API's for their javascript engine. QML is more than just javascript.
