Apparently the Gnome team is in deep decline, losing market share and mind share:
Hmm, perhaps that’s because Gnome 3 sucks and whenever someone points that out we’re told we’re ‘scared of change’ and ‘if we don’t like Gnome, use something else’.
Dumb, dumb, dumb.
Linus also comments there on why ‘extensions’ are a piss-poor ‘solution’ to a fundamentally broken design.
At least if Gnome 3 does collapse, we might see some sanity in Linux desktop GUIs again.
