    Exclamation gOS will change to a Gnome base and abandon e17

    This has been rumored for a while now:

    Reference the following thread on the gOS Official Forum, here:

    Not being big into rumors I have confirmed this with the gOS Dev, mekius.

    10:33 mekius RAVTUX: hi
    RAVTUX mekius: is it true that gOS will be changing to Gnome?
    10:34 mekius yes
    RAVTUX ok
    10:35 RAVTUX Thanks for the 411
    Qoute from the #gos-dev on Freenode at the times posted.

    The conversation continued at #cafeLinux...

    To read a bit more in depth conversation on the subject matter please refer to the CafeLinux Forum thread, here.

    The point being is the decision is by Everex, not so much the gOS Devs...

    It is a bit mis-guided:

    Reference:
    10:36 mekius yeah, they switched to gnome
    mekius for the sheer fact that it was suppose to save them time and thus money, but it's just time spent elsewhere heh
    10:37 mekius mostly time dealing with the same exact issues we were dealing with, hardware issues
    Quote from gOS Dev mekius at #cafelinux on Freenode

    Admittedly here it appears the decision by Everex is a bit misguided, as the same hardware issues will exist in Gnome.

    I will have to disagree there. I think fluxbox is too limited to be used for simple home users. I think XFCE or E17 is the best, but I think it shouldn't be too light (Fluxbox) or too heavy (Gnome/KDE).

    I think ratpoison for the default gOS WM is good enough though

    One day someone may actually put together a Ubuntu derivative with a RatPoison WM, but what they will call it is beyond me.

    According to Click, the CloudBook will now run a version of gOS with GNOME, instead of Enlghtenment, showing that Everex is continuing to improve their software.
    hahahahaha

    burn to e17
