Will GNOME 3.4 Save the Linux Desktop?

Filed under
Software

From the 'I Miss GNOME 2.x' Files:

There are a lot of people that don't like the changes brought to the Linux desktop with GNOME 3. Among those people is none other than the father of Linux himself, Linus Torvalds.

But that could be changing as GNOME 3.4 development work continues and could build on some improvements that first debuted in GNOME 3.2

"Hey, with gnome-tweak-tool and the dock extension, gnome-3.2 is starting to look almost usable," Linus Torvalds wrote in a Google+ posting." Now I just hope those things become part of the standard gnome shell setup and made available in the regular "system config" thing rather than hidden off…Or would that be too close to "Ok, we admit we were wRong" and thus not politically acceptable?"

rest here




Answer:

No.

Save it from what? Linux

Save it from what? Linux desktop is just fine.

By the time Fedora 21 actually ships, Fedora 20 will have been at least twelve months old. However, a new release scheduling strategy might be tried starting with Fedora 22. Read more
