Bug 626593 – Gnome ate my boyfriend Help

Filed under
Humor

GNOME is an open-source desktop environment used with operating systems such as Linux. Like most open-source projects it has a bug tracker where users can report issues they are having, and developers can respond and/or implement fixes.

Yesterday, however, the GNOME bug tracker was used for a completely different request. A girlfriend, named Ilana, of a purported GNOME and Linux-obsessed guy posted asking how she can, “bring my boyfriend back from “Linux Land.”"

Here’s an excerpt from the post:

Because of you, my boyfriend is chronically attached to his computer and has ceased to pay attention to me. I try to plan fun things for us to do on the weekends and then he cancels on my because of GNOME conferences! He even went to the Netherlands to GUADEC two weeks ago and left me at home alone for a week! He keeps going to all these conferences and I just don’t know what to do. Apparently there is some Boston Summit thing he keeps talking about?

rest here

These include the Linux 4.8 kernel packages and an updated graphics stack based on a newer X.Org Server version and Mesa 3D Graphics Library. Read more
