This is so arrogant, misleading, and plain false, that I'm almost speakless. A Proponent of one of the two major DEs, just having lived through the GNOME 3 forced-but-too-early-introduction flamewar, think that they don't force distributions with their decisions?
And uses the Pulseaudio introduction debacle as a shining example, how to `do it right'? You know, the one that still comes up in any discussion of Lennart's work as a prime example of `how not to do it right'?
Have GNOME developers eventually lost any contact to the Real World(tm) where their users live in?
