Vincent Untz: Explaining GNOME 3

Interviews

The openSUSE Conference 2010 Sneak Peaks will introduce some speakers and talks to you. Today we feature the talk “Explaining GNOME 3″ from Vincent Untz.

Okay given the title of your talk, Explaining GNOME 3, i take it it will be about explaining gnome 3 right? What needs explaining there?

Ah, I guess, one thing to know about me too is that I submit talks with titles, without knowing what I’ll talk about Wink So it could well be that “Explaining GNOME 3″ turns out to be about something completely different. That being said, I might keep the submitted topic since GNOME 3 is a big step for the GNOME project, and what we are trying to achieve is not always crystal clear from the outside. There are at least two parts of the talks that I can think of right now, which will likely be of interest to the audience:

1. Why does the GNOME project need to do GNOME 3, instead of keeping the 2.x way forever? After all, GNOME 2.x is all about evolutionary steps, and that’s something we could keep doing.

2. The vision of what we want GNOME 3 to be. People do not always see the long-term vision of a project, and clarifying it does help understand the changes we’re implementing.

A third part that we feel is important is explaining GNOME Shell: it’s a big move where people feel it will directly affect their interaction with the computer

If you say GNOME 3 won’t be evolutionary, does this mean GNOME 3 will not be based on what currently is GNOME 2? After all evolution is about inheritance.
