Molnar suggests that the GNOME and KDE projects need to stop focusing on competitor's products and start focusing on process. He cites git and the move of GNOME to git as positive examples of thinking more carefully about products and their users. He also suggests that OSS developers have a unique opportunity to engage desktop users in the development process."
Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to
be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
