GNOME a full-featured OS?
Last weeks GUADEC was less like a developers conference and more like a presidential campaign rally! The enthusiasm, positivity and general feedback that it has garnered is incredible but amongst the many interesting things propositioned at GUADEC came the idea of a GNOME as an OS.
“Linux as implementation detail..”
Using his Guadec speech, Red Hat’s Jon McCann put forward the notion of Gnome as an OS rather than, as it currently is, a collection of projects, tool sets and platform upon which other distributions and developers build upon. Various distributions customize the default Gnome desktop to differing degrees.
