Do you _really_ want me involved? Think about it. I'm frequently vitriolic towards just about everything Linux/FOSS-related these days, have long lost any semblance of patience for what I identify as stupid or incompetent developers, I hate trying to communicate and collaborate over the Internet, and there's little chance of me ever respecting several of the key GNOME community members. I'm pretty much the social opposite of the ideal FOSS project contributor.
So far as my posts on GNOME 3 and the "energy" involved, tpo is right that I've been incredibly nasty about it all, and most of that energy has been quite negative. I've been a die-hard Linux/GNOME user since before GNOME 1.0, and went almost 10 years without even owning or using a copy of Windows, but those days are behind me and I need to stop being incensed over GNOME not being Windows 7 and just accept that I'm no longer a "real" Linux desktop user.
Sorry for being a jerk. I'm going to refrain from commenting on GNOME from now on.
