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.

  • LibRetro's Vulkan PlayStation PSX Renderer Released
    A few days back I wrote about a Vulkan renderer for a PlayStation emulator being worked on and now the code to that Vulkan renderer is publicly available. For those wanting to relive some PlayStation One games this week or just looking for a new test case for Vulkan drivers, the Vulkan renderer for the LibRetro Beetle/Mednafen PSX emulator is now available, months after the LibRetro folks made a Vulkan renderer for the Nintendo 64 emulator.
  • Etnaviv DRM Updates Submitted For Linux 4.10
    The Etnaviv DRM-Next pull request is not nearly as exciting as MSM getting Adreno 500 series support, a lot of Intel changes, or the numerous AMDGPU changes, but it's not bad either for a community-driven, reverse-engineered DRM driver for the Vivante graphics cores.
  • Mesa 12.0.4 Being Prepped For Ubuntu 16.10/16.04
    Ubuntu is preparing Mesa 12.0.4 for Ubuntu Xenial and Yakkety users. It's not as great as Mesa 13, but at least there are some important fixes back-ported. Mesa 12.0.4 is exciting for dozens of bug fixes, including the work to offer better RadeonSI performance. But with Mesa 12.0.4 you don't have the RADV Vulkan driver, OpenGL 4.5, or the other exciting Mesa 13 work.
