Comment Re:There will be no GNOME 4. (Score 1) 378

Gnome 3 is great. I'm looking forward to the next release. I used Unity for two days and switched.

I'm certain the Gnome team will get most issues fixed soon, as did the KDE team with their 4.0 version.

Gnome is still heavily backed by Redhat, as Unity is by Ubuntu. And seriously, who do you think will write the better code?

Comment Mint is to Ubuntu, as Ubuntu is to Debian? (Score 1) 685

Isn't Mint just a fork from Ubuntu with a few extra packages in the repository and a few homebrewn apps?

My guess is, people 'flock' to Mint, because Mint 11 is still on Gnome 2. Last time I checked Mint application version numbers were far behind Ubuntu.

I just want to go back to Debian unstable, but I'm soooo lazy.
