Jorge on Gnome’s approach:

Many on /. are complaining that GNOME developers are forcing their “view” of the desktop upon them. “Why can’t they put a preference?” and “They’re ignoring advanced users and dumbing things down.” … Now I’m going to say something controversial. So? Tough. OSS is not a democracy. Live with it. … There are a dozen real problems in GNOME and the “Linux Desktop” that need to be fixed. fam sucks, menu editing needs to be redone, coaster needs to get finished, we need zeroconf working throughout the desktop, the lockdown stuff needs to get finished, we desperately need Project Utopia and meanwhile the armchair critics are complaining about window colors. Window colors.

Sing it, brother.

I'm currently available for hire, to help you plan, architect, and build new systems, and for technical writing and articles. You can take a look at some projects I've worked on and some of my writing. If you'd like to talk about your upcoming project, do get in touch.
