Wow! If it is subjective, it is automatically nonsense.
In the definition I looked up, it states for nonsense: "Subject matter, behavior, or language that is foolish or absurd.". I was not claiming that what you said is foolish or absurd, I just don't agree with you.
Surely, you have to be kidding. You obviously do not think that it is possible to measure at which font size majority of people can easily read the text, at which size majority of people can comfortably hit a button with their finger etc.
You claimed you could measure similar things objectively.
I did not claim Gnome was usable on a tablet. Only that Gnome developers insist on making my desktop behave like a tablet/phone
So GNOME is not usable on a tablet. I'm a GNOME developer, and I don't insist on making your desktop behave like a tablet/phone. I don't really care what you use on your desktop actually.
I'd like to see some reference of those developers. Actually, a few designer would be more appropriate.
PS. You have just reduced decades of usability research to nothing more than someone's whim.
No need to get personal or to claim you're an expert on usability research. Seems like two different fallacy arguments.
