    Gnome: The ethics of saying just "no"

    Very disturbing:

    http://spiralinear.org/forum/discuss...y-on-bugzilla-

    I mean, every action like this, placed towards users, should show some reason as to why. A developer saying "no" - and nothing else - sounds rather condesending to the end users to me. It also shuts down any comprehensive debate - and creates this struggle that the blog article describes...

    Are they really trying to replace rhythmbox with an even more stripped down version?

    Are they aiming for a blank window?

    More on the music app:

    That's Gnome development team for you. I still wonder what's happened to them. It's like if they were replaced with doppelgangers at some point. They just can't be the same people who created Gnome classic because nothing they've done since 2010 makes any sense.

    I didn't know the Ubuntu/Linux/OS chat was a support area. At first I was going to post this in the cafe, but was worried it would be moved, as I saw that only non-tech subjects were allowed there. I'm a bit confused now...

    What is the technical support question? There are no questions, just observations, and this is the place for 'comprehensive debate'. Good luck.
