Submission + - Is GNOME Pushing Itself Off a Cliff? ( 1

jammag writes: "Linux pundit Bruce Byfield takes a look at GNOME's recently proposed changes and wonders if the Linux desktop's plans are too ambitious — disastrously so. Byfield, who's not given to hyperbole, writes "GNOME may be about to attempt changes that are far more radical than the ones that had KDE users screaming obscenities last year." He points to potential problems with GNOME Zeitgeist and GNOME Shells, among other concerns, opining that the departure may simply be too radical to work. He concludes "Perhaps feeling the pressure as KDE 4 gains acceptance, GNOME seems to have been panicked into a hasty decision. It may have articulated a vision, but what if it is a vision that nobody else will want to share?""

This has nothing to do with "Your rights online", nothing to do with geekitude, it's just a partisan bump of a partisan shill.

Horseshit, I say.

Point out the unconstitutionality of citizen disarmament and wealth redistribution, and these same brave defenders of the Constitution start babbling about living documents and suicide pacts.

Oh, and Taco? Slate? Are you fucking serious? Get a life.
