The GNOME project could have avoided so much vitriol if they had allowed the distros to keep shipping 2.xx while their 3.xx series matured.

But then maybe people would have chosen to keep using Gnome 2 and wouldn't have been exposed to the awesomeness of Gnome 3 and to "the brand"! Will someone please think of the brand?

Man, was just going to write that! +1 and going to share, let's think of the brand! XD

Adopt a GNOME developer today, but keep her/him/it away from poisonous criticism, or he/she/it will wither away ;)

Personally I always thought that being branded was meant to be a *punishment*. I can't understand why anyone might think that jamming YES IT'S US YOU ARE USING US NEVER FORGET WE CHOSE THE LOOK SO YOU COULD NOT FORGET in people's faces is going to make them like the resulting system.
