Her en plan for GNOME OS
Allan Day runs an interesting blog called "As far as I know" about GNOME development and design. In a recent posting Mr Day talks about plans in the GNOME camp to address design, development and infrastructure problems. These plans fall under the title "GNOME OS". Mr Day takes pains to clarify what GNOME OS is and what it is not: "The idea of GNOME OS has been around for a couple of years, and there has been a fair amount of confusion about what it means. Some people seem to have assumed that GNOME OS is an effort to replace distributions, so let me be clear: that is not the case. While the creation of a standalone GNOME OS install does feature as a part of our plans, this is primarily intended as a platform for testing and development." The post is a well structured read and gives insight into some of the problems the GNOME team faces and how they hope to address various challenges, including having GNOME 3 run on both traditional desktops and on touch screen devices.
