Tux Machines (TM)-specific
Here we go again, around and around, what's old is new again, and all those other metaphors. TuxRadar asked if Linux and associated software are suffering from too many geeks doing their own thing? The discussion (d)evolved into another one of those "too much choice" topics and, of course, very few think Linux suffers from that.
One commenter said, "I think the slower and more painstaking approach of creating and getting adoption for open standards is the way forward, rather than trying to come up with unified frameworks in software that may restrict developers and disappoint users." Another agreed, "No to a unified desktop."
Ray Woods reminded users, "We've just seen the itch in action. Gnome bring out Gnome 3 with their shell and a lot of people get itching."
