I don't deny what you are saying, but that doesn't mean you have to mention it multiple times in an article that is only peripherally related to that fact.

The fact that he repeatedly had to point this out, rather than talk about what Karen would be doing is what bugs me.

Wow. No, really. Wow. You're a bit touchy, aren't you?

The subject of GNOME 3 only appears towards the end, when discussing the context in wich Karen will be developing his duties. All in all, the article only mentions GNOME 3 in a total of 8 (eight!) paragraphs. The whole article is 27 paragraphs. It's barely a quarter of the article. Now, would you really call this "repeatedly pointing out"? Really?

When someone spends months and months on a project, working more than is expected, on something that they think is really great and will make the lives of users easier; broad-sweeping assertions and dismissive remarks about how the heavens are falling because of the hard work put in, will of course lead to happy happy smiley faces on all sides.

The amount of work notwithstanding, all of the questions I posed to Karen were based on the reality facing GNOME as she takes the job. "Happy smiley faces" are not really the objective - asking legitimate questions is. As a long-time user of GNOME, I don't see the current release as a marked improvement. As an observer of the industry, I only see one company that seems pleased with GNOME Shell -- and that's a company that doesn't express any interest in pursuing desktop Linux. The company / project that has the largest share of the Linux desktop has essentially rejected GNOME Shell and seems to be moving towards Qt.

In short - The questions were legitimate, and you can be pretty sure other reporters will ask the same things if they interview Karen.
