sorry to disappoint, that wasn't me. the GP is correct, though, in identifying most of the negative feedback for Gnome 3 as the result of hypocritical hipsters - so it's understandable that you might be confused.
you don't know me, son, so let me explain this to you once: If I ever bitchslap you, you'll be using an AC post. I'll be using my account. and I'll still bitchslap you so hard, your mom will feel it (just like she did last night).
the burden of proof befalls on you, my dear; and you have no proof that the name was chosen intentionally. but obviously this is the internet, where random muppets like you can make up stuff and ask others to prove it false. guess what, I can also say that your mom was pleasuring me the other night.
Also, the way you speak to people online needs to change -unless you really are 14 years old. You wouldn't make your ditch comment to me in person (without my hand print on your cheek as a thank you) so don't do it online either.
don't be so sure about that: the argument cuts both ways - and if your first thought was a slap on the cheek then I'm pretty sure I'd find you seething and looking at my feet while whimpering about my harsh words. now get lost, nerd.
Is that the "open source way"? Or are you not fixing a bug that scores of users have taken the trouble to report over three years out of laziness, or is it some kind of nerd pride? What must we go, oh master?
nobody pays anybody to work full time on the whole of GNOME; it's a volunteer effort, through and through. this is also true of a lot of other open source projects.
if no developer is working on your pet bug you have two choices: a) learn the ropes and fix it yourself or b) convince a developer (with money, if necessary) that your pet bug is important and that he or she should work on it for you.
otherwise you have misunderstood how open source works, and you don't get to complain.
I'd feel more amenable to the GNOME developers plight if they'd give some attention to some of the three-plus year old bugs that don't seem to get any attention. Some of the bugs aren't serious, but they're so simple and yet so annoying you'd figure someone would have fixed them years ago.
and I'd feel more amenable about closing "simple" bugs if you provided patches for them instead of moaning and bitching about them on
Clutter is an open source project that has been around since 2005, and "marketing morons" have nothing to do with its name. and since it's an API to create applications, toolkits and desktop environment, then you won't have Clutter on your desktop, but your desktop will use Clutter internally.
oooh, it was a pun on the name! now, I get it.
They're revamping their whole product line with names like this.
New speech synthesis software: Mutter
actually, the fork of the Metacity window manager using Clutter to handle the scenegraph is called Mutter
a video? like, I don't know, this one?
the Moblin 2.0 UI for netbooks is probably the best showcase of what Clutter can do.
