Re: GNObuntu ?
I agree with you that Gnome Shell is not failing or "dying in popularity". I spent a lot of time myself with Gnome Shell on openSUSE and it really is pretty amazing. I found it very intuitive and easy to use, and not limiting at all. There's just at the moment a hardcore of vocal detractors who don't like the changes being made to the desktop, but there are plenty of options available for those people if they would calm down.

I'm still looking forward to Gubuntu, and I hope it happens. I think they should use that name regardless of Google's internal use of it. After all, Ubuntu is Ubuntu, and not Google. Does anyone know if this is still going ahead then? It's been very quiet since the announcement a while ago, and there's been no updates.
