    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?

    Yes. The less they have to do, they better they like it. I wonder why they even bother.

    More on the music app:

    https://live.gnome.org/Music

    Seeing it and the features, it does look rather barebones. Though rhythmbox will still be around...

    Gnome: where good ideas die a slow painful death and are removed because of crazy people.

    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 may have an answer to that

    Everyone who knew how everything works started looking at iOS and came to the realization that Objective-C really isn't all that different from what they have been using and now work for companies requiring mobile apps for their services / products. They can now make a decent living and pay for things like food and shelter.

    There was even an article about those old Jedi masters ( old is relative here - they're talking about > 37 ) and how they seem to outperform their younger counterparts on mobile development: http://developers.slashdot.org/story...arn-new-tricks
