    How I ended up with Mac

    Makes sense to me.

    Nah, too old and set in my ways to survive sudden changes. I do however want to trim my distro usage down to max. 2 - otherwise a lot of time is spent simply staying current. ;)

    It's the end of Linux now. Lol. /sarcasm
     
  6. OMG really? People have been predicting he would switch to Mac for some time, even saying he must be developing on an iDevice. Makes sense too, his designs with Gnome 3 have been almost offensively iOS-like.

    With luck, his withdrawal from the Linux community will result in some sanity returning to Gnome.

    Which designs are these, I though he left the Gnome project before Gnome 3 development started ?
     
  9. You're right, it looks like he wasn't on the Gnome 3 team. My bad.

    (He is on record as being quite happy with Gnome 3 though, and I think this shows us why...)

    Edit: to be clear, I don't have anything against liking OSX (though I have a lot personally against Apple itself). Want to use a Mac, that's your business; I happen to prefer Windows and Linux.

    However, I dislike when people try to drag power-user-hostile concepts from OSX into Linux.

    Note: The fragmentation is in the distributions (not the Linux kernel) to cater to different uses.
