Re: Is GNOME in Free Fall?

Who's gonna dominate? Pretty obvious. Spacecoke Mark has his army of Kool Aid Kids, almost as bad as the fruit fanbois. He really worked on building a cult and Ubuntu's still the most popular distro, that ships with Unity by default. He's also investing in alternative devices like tablets and TV's, which will familiarize more consumers with his interface. Unity will be #1 soon enough.

Why is it necessary to be insulting every time you talk about Ubuntu? Is it out of the realm of possibility that Mark is doing something that others genuinely appreciate and perhaps that's a good thing? Is it so hurtful to you that people do things that are not your personal preference?

He does have a point.

Unity, and before it, the Gnome layout in Ubuntu, were entirely driven by Mark's vision. To boot, he rulse the thing with an Iron fist as well.

As it stands I find Unity to be more useable, even if I'm not fond of it aesthetically, so as much as history is proving Mark right; right now, it doesn't make him any less inflexible.

The point was people can disagree with the direction of a company or its products and still be adult about it. "Spacecoke Mark" is no better than referring to Apple as "crapple."

In fact, most of us are far more likely to listen to an alternative view when it's professionally presented. Too often, that's not the case in this forum.

... and to No_Strings See Profile point, it's rare that I ever block anyone on here but there's one person in this forum who I have blocked because I simply got tired of picking out the wheat from the /excessive/ chaff in his posts.

Cheers,
