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.
Jovovich traveled through haunted, dead cities to discover the Gnome facilities..
..And she did find them. She fought bravely the Gnome Developers who tried to stop her. And she won without a single scratch.
She finally made it to get into the Gnome’s mystic labs.
..but what did she find?
This is how the new Gnome will look like.. Gnome Shell has been replaced by a bottom panel. And this is the famous initial setup, which has been renamed to “Start Here”.
The new Nautilus hasn’t Compact View and Extra Pane, (so you have to re-fork it!) but it can render HTML. Not Web-kit thought :)
Customization Settings are back by default. So Sawfish!
Thanks to Milla Jovovich all Distros can now have free access to Upstream Gnome. No more excuses :)
Happy birthday to Gnome!
1997-2012 | There were two.. Now we are many :0)
Karen Sandler Interview
The executive director of Gnome Karen Sandler gives a YouTube (25′) interview to Jeremy Allison.
Karen talks about how she involved with OS, her role in Gnome Foundation, the differences and the collaboration of Gnome with the other desktops, the new fashion of Tablet devices over Laptops, the importance of the Accessibility in Gnome and the involvement of Women in the project.
That was just a joke to the latest events with Gnome’s bad communication with other Open Source Teams. I don’t mean to be sarcastic or insult anyone here :)
Ps. Previously was Gnome 1.4 which released in April 2001 and you can get and try with a VBox from Gnome’s Happy B-Day page!
