A bigger question would be to ask Red Hat to give some sort of explanation of where they are trying to lead everyone else. They explicitly reject any ambition in the desktop space, loudly, publicly and on the record at every opportunity. Yet they employee the people most involved in the attempt at transforming Linux into something alien to it's previous role as the ultimate expression of the "UNIX Way." From the bottom end with systemd and all of the *kit stuff, to the middle with PulseAudio and the quest to recreate the Windows registry, all the way up the stack to the GNOMEs with their tablet madness. All too often the key people have @redhat.com on their email address.
Maybe we need to evolve beyond UNIX/POSIX. Maybe we don't. Maybe reasonable people can disagree on the question. But to have a informed discussion it would really help if we knew what the new proposed lodestar is. One gets the impression they do have a goal, that it isn't all just random code churn and overinflated egos. It all almost comes together and forms a coherent picture, but doesn't quite. It is the feeling of flailing around in the dark that is causing the most disquiet, at least for me.
Open Source need to be a little more than just dumping code over the wall.
