It was known that Red Hat would ship GNOME 3, we could imagine that they will ship GNOME 3.8 but a bit of surprise comes by the fact that they are going to ship the classic mode instead of the default.
Today I got my brand new Raspberry PI, but I think I bought it for all the wrong reasons..
GNOME Software might need some help to be ready for 3.10!
These Fedorians are crazy ;) From the awful F15 to awesome F19!
Canonical isn’t a small company for example like Oracle. Therefore we can make some genuine fun of them from time to time. Well, and if there is any complain we will just put the post down. As long as someone here is awake ;)
This post is about two months late and just one day after IGNOME Valentine’s Day ..and is pure gossip ;) The girl on the left, is Karen Sandler and she is my personal favorite Gnomer for 2012!
In GNOME 3.8 many improvements already have arrived, and by watching all the previous releases, Gnomers this time will surprise us with a magnificent desktop. Gnome 3.8 focuses on Settings and Allan Day wrote once again a superb article of all changes. Is everything looking cool? Nope, there are many things that aren’t ready yet [...]
Normally I would avoid to post something political here, and I would avoid it twice when this concerns just one single country, in this case my country Greece. In a country that suffers from huge financial problems, the choice of the Greek Ministry of Education to buy MS products for schools and leave some students without computers (without [...]
GNOME Shell is too modern to be 2D, isn’t it? Gevera had an idea to create a depth illusion through a transition, when we open Shell Overview. While this isn’t practical it could be aesthetically pleasant at least to some people.
Why does GNOME 3 use a touch screen interface when you can’t actually run GNOME in any tablet -at least today- is a typical question. A typical answer would be, because all screens will be touch-screens by 2013-2014. And in case you want to keep things classic, GNOME will still offer you a more traditional [...]
I am using latest Gnome with JHBuild and Fedora 18 for several days and I am so impressed that I thought to write about it! This is not about to make you either install Fedora or upstream Gnome with JHBuild, but certainly the idea of having the very latest Gnome, in a rolling release form, is charming. [...]
I was curious to get some statistics about Gnome Shell that I couldn’t find on Ohloh or Bitergia, like the commits per tag. By the way the guys on Bitergia are doing some analysis over Gnome Shell so you might want to check their work. I end up to use GitStats to extract these info [...]
This post isn’t against the ZDNet Network or against any of its writers. I use ZDNet, David Meyer and Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols as nothing more than an example to show you that you have to be cautious about what are you reading in high traffic magazines relatively to Gnome. In any case this is not [...]
This is a response to some high traffic Tech/News Magazines that tend to present Gnome like an unpopular, un-maintain and almost abandoned project. But it is also a response to some people that are pessimistic and negative about the future of Gnome. I believe that things are much different…
It is true that Gnome scientists work secretly many meters under the ground in mysterious projects under the protection of evil and powerful Red Umbrella Corporation. They share no information about their future plans and communication is closed. Milla Jovovich a soldier and activist of Free Software tried and succeed to expose their plans and she shares them [...]
Can you get emotional with software? Can you get happy with a new Gnome release? Can you get mad about Gnome3? Can you get sad because Ubuntu dropped GS? Can you get excited because GS will return in Ubuntu? Can you fight about KDE and Gnome? Linux Desktop is nothing more but a Feeling!
What is in common with the golden winner of 100 & 200m in 2012 (and 2008!) Olympic Games and Gnome3? They are both born to run fast and break records! The so unpopular Gnome3 won the Product of Year and Best Desktop Environment in Linux Journal Readers’ Choice Awards ’11, in every release makes a new record [...]
What a KDE does in a Gnome blog? Normally it gets FUD, but this time we are going to praise it! I got double hit from KDE yesterday. First by the awesome news that Digia Committed to Thriving Qt Ecosystem and secondly by trying Rebecca Black. Besides this post is a good chance to prove that [...]
And the 1st day users said: “We don’t like Unity”. And Clem made Mint. And the 2nd day the users said: “We don’t like Gnome”. And Clem made Cinnamon. And the 3rd day users said: “We don’t like Nautilus”. And Clem made Nemo ..And the 7th day Mark said. “Let have 200 millions users“. And [...]
This is the classic parody clip with Hitler. This time Hitler seems to be quite angry with Gnome developers as they removed the customization options in Gnome 3, and he declares that Linux is all about choice! Enjoy but don’t get into political BS :)
