Linus Torvalds is actually back on Gnome 3!

This post was made with an older stylesheet

Ok, to be fair the full sentence of Linus was

I have to say, things are so much better now that were one year ago, I am actually back to using Gnome 3; and I don’t like some other things they did, but they have been fixing issues, it has been get less painful, they have extensions now that are still much to hard to find; but with extensions you can make your desktop look almost as good as it used to look 2 years ago.

So it isn’t like Linus praising Gnome 3, but maybe in next interview. You will find the full video here, and Linus talks about Linux Desktop and Gnome at 1.19 min. To be honest I didn’t watch the full video yet, but Linus once more again says interesting things about Linux prospect and support from hardware companies -which is getting better.

And I am not a guy that believes that someone’s opinion matters more than someone else -when that comes to UI-, even if that someone is Linus. But I am making this just to make fun to ZDNet (and other popular Tech News Magazines) writers :)

In any case Gnome Design Team deserves many congratulations because they are building something that has to work for core users (like Linus) or naive users (my Mom), it has to work in any screen size and with any input device ..or human body part :)

“When you innovate,  you’ve got to be prepared for everyone to telling you, you’re nuts”  Larry Ellison said, and without saying that Gnome3 is something innovating, is certainly a new approach and in my opinion it received the less possible -but normal expected- complains.


Fantastic Progress in Every Detail Matters

Allan Day is the creator of Every Details Matter project and of course the best guy to talk about. Although we have mentioned every feature on this project (my favorite Gnome Project!) , is always better to have the actual developers to talk about.

The Login Screen in Gnome Shell now has properly styled insensitive buttons, and it makes sure that the Unlock button is insensitive until the password entry field contains some text. Also the black bar on the top has been removed and Login Screen looks more native and solid.

    You realize this was posted 2 weeks ago, right?

    So…BEFORE he said he was going to try KDE again.

    So much for journalism. But as you said, “What you can do? It’s a job after all :)”

    • alex285

      2 weeks and 2 days ..but I just did discover.

  • rw

    My last comment was deleted right away, so I’ll repost:

    This was more than 2 weeks ago, BEFORE he said he was going to try KDE again.

    “Oh dear. Now all the journalists at woGue have to re-write articles to not smugly criticize those who criticize other journalists who suck at their jobs. What you can do? It’s a job after all :)”

    • alex285

      Too bad we are not journalists and we don’t get paid :)

      He said he was gonna try, but he didnt said he liked KDE or KDE has got improved, right?

  • foobar

    Who cares about the troll anyway? :)

    • IsacDaavid

      Who cares about Torvalds’ choice regarding desktop environments? He changes his mind so fast that his opinion is irrelevant.

      • alex285

        That’s the point, you can’t get Linus opinion (or any single opinion) and say if Gnome is good or not. This is just for the gossip :)

    The video was posted 2 weeks ago. Linus’ G+ post was made 8 days ago. Check basic facts before writing your articles.

    • alex285

      Just few things
      1. It was 2 weeks ago not 2 years ago. I guess he was speaking about Gnome 3.6
      2. If you’re referring to KDE post, we don’t do KDE here
      3. Try to understand that I don’t count Linus opinion on that matter more than anyone’s else,but I’am making a *joke* to people that abuse Linus sayings to convince the rest that Gnome3 grows unpopular.

      And yes I do criticize ZDNet writers because they have much more responsibilities that we have. They do news, they are popular, they target a broader audience, they get paid. And my opinion is some of ZDNet people (*some not all*) that write about Gnome have not a clue.

      • Richard Towin

        And you something thing that we give a damn about your f**king opinion. Before making a joke on Zdnet, make sure you don’t look like a clown yourself. Linus is back to KDE actually after flirting with Gnome and in that video he wanted to make sure he didnot make any negative comments. So, get your facts first. You guys are like FOX of Gnome. You guys are dangerous for the Gnome project. Shut down this website before you do any more damage.

          Whatever dude ^

        • Sriram Ramkrishna

          Actually, I believe he has returned yet again back to GNOME 3 according to an article less than a week ago. But it doesn’t really matter. We shouldn’t be following a personality cult. The fact that he switches back and forth is just how Linus rolls. As long as GNOME helps you get your work done then that is all that matters.

  • Aventinus the Zethos

    This is so Linus. He was like that since ever. Meh.

    Gnome 3 is the Linux response to Windows 8: “Bill, we cannot afford to let you suxx more than us!”
