Questioning corporate involvement in GNOME development

Questioning corporate involvement in GNOME development

RedHat's corporate interests aren't to run an in-house GNOME environment - they basically represent the interests of end-users who pay them for support and updates. It's hard to see how their involvement could be a bad thing without hurting their own profitability.

If you're looking for the source of GNOME's problems, look for the person who decided that notification icons should be hidden until you go looking for them.

Gnome-shell is pretty much the opposite of what I want my desktop environment to do - and I'm pretty sure I'm not alone.

No... far from it. But the GNOME developers choose not to see or hear the complaints. GNOME3 still pisses me off on a daily basis. It always seemed to me that the misguided designers that brought us the Gnome Shell disaster worked for Red Hat.

And oddly enough, it's pretty much exactly what I want my desktop environment to do -- and I *know* I'm not alone in that.

For me, it was light-years beyond what G2 offered, even in its original 3.0 release.
