GNOME3 and openSUSE 12.1 – A conspiracy theory!

Filed under
Software
SUSE

This text is based on a personal interpretation of several events, and as such it reflects one of several potential interpretations, MINE!

On the last GNOME Team meeting there was a small topic to check if it would be interesting to have a GNOME2 spin for the upcoming 12.1 release of openSUSE. It was decided not to provide a GNOME2 spin and somehow this suggests that GNOME2 is dead for openSUSE (unless someone takes the job in).

One of the interesting things that poped during this meeting was the fact that GNOME3 has a ‘fallback mode’, or at least that’s how it became to be known among GNOME users, press and competitors.
