Dricot: A freasy future for GNOME
Posted Aug 12, 2012 7:49 UTC (Sun) by russell (subscriber, #10458)
GNOME will abandon their current user base just to chase new users. i.e. they are willing to have zero users ( momentarily if they are lucky ) in the hope of having different users. And in a market that have missed!
They should try doing multiple things at the same time. Start from a position of strength, don't restart from scratch. Don't leave your existing users behind. Don't remove functionality. Have a policy of no regressions BEFORE releasing new stuff. And FINALLY get a roadmap that is believable and has user buy in.
