GNOME Founder Says Desktop Linux is Dead

Interesting read: GNOME Founder Says Desktop Linux is Dead

Miguel de Icaza, one of the founders of the GNOME project, has said that OS X has ‘killed the Linux desktop’.

Definitely some stuff to think on in there, and as someone who was a full on Linux fanboy from 1994 to 2008 or so, it’s sad but (in a way, and IMHO), true. There will always be a Linux Desktop, and I think that everyone will agree that the “Year of the Linux Desktop” is mostly a joke right now, and this is just someone enumerating why the Linux Desktop failed.

All is not lost. Apple is getting some interesting blow back for being too big (after years of getting blow back for being too small), Windows is… well, Windows, and Microsoft is the company everyone loves to hate, so Linux really is the OS to go to for a lot of people. Thing that has to happen is the default install on say, an 8 core, 6G modern machine, shouldn’t peg the RAM and CPU for the first 5 minutes of use, at least, based on my Ubuntu 12.04 install on a modern and fast laptop.

Regardless of my bitching about Ubuntu, Miguel has some good points about the alienation of third party software developers, seen in the lack of a stable standard for things like audio and video and the massive number of available linux distributions.

A Great View of Recent Linux and GNOME Development

Alex Cabal has a great post Dear Gnome devs: Please stop trashing Gnome! talking about some of the recent issues with GNOME and the Linux desktop environment. I personally picked out the personal entreaty to the gnome developers

Simplicity is not the same as slashing-and-burning features that you personally never use. I know that 37signal’s web 3.0 siren song of “simple and beautiful” is tempting, but it’s done more damage than good: Developers get sucked in to this “people only understand simple” fantasy world and forget that they’re developers, not designers, and not only that but in this case they don’t even represent their own target market.

I think that the ‘perfect is the enemy of good’ quote is appropriate here as well, and that while I love Linux, it’s time to face certain realities and start aiming at

GNOME 3.0 Rescheduled for March 2011 Release

I won't lie and say I didn't see this coming, but according to the official page, GNOME 3.0 is Rescheduled for March 2011 Release.

GNOME is driven by its goals to provide a quality free software desktop, and we feel that our users and downstream community are better served by holding the GNOME 3.0 release until March 2011. This gives adequate time not only for feature development, but user feedback and testing.

Having 3.0 ready for the "next" GNOME release was a pretty aggressive goal, especially with no "real" alphas or test releases out, and the only real evidence that the great "3.0" milestone being a hodgepodge of software released. Still, I'd rather 3.0 come out fully baked and ready for the world than a thrown together mix of software, paradigms and APIs. Still, it is a bit of sad news for those of us who were looking forward to 3.0 to come out this year.

Gnome 3.0 To Be Delayed Until September 2010?

OMG actual Linux news? From OMG Ubuntu, an excellent site I discovered recently, it sounds like Gnome 3.0 Will Be Delayed Until September 2010 simply because of the state of the project (beta quality) and the GNOME release timetable. Personally I'd rather wait and get something good instead of having something unstable. Course, I'd also like to have the new GNOME 3.0 shell to play with, cause it looks like this'll make GNOME take a revolutionary step forward instead of the evolutionary ones that the last few 2.x releases have been.

GNOME to go GIT?

Interesting tidbit about the GNOME linux desktop project from OSNews.... seems they are Migrating to Git for their revision control system.

This is interesting, as git was created for the Linux kernel developers after the non-free software that was being used (BitKeeper) went to a for-pay scheme. Git semed to explode as the Ruby on Rails project (with GitHub and friends), and this seems to be a second (that I know of) major Linux project to adopt git for their SCM.

GNOME 2.26 Released

Check out the GNOME 2.26 Release Notes for all the new goodness that's been revealed in the latest release. Short summary is better disk burning with Brasero integrated, better file sharing with the integration of webdav and bluetooth, Evolution mail client upgrades, more PulseAudio integration, easier multi-monitor configuration, better IM (including video), lots of other minor tweaks.

Again it is (IMHO) an evolutionary upgrade, with not a lot of really new stuff or quite frankly, exciting stuff. It is good to see the improvements, improved developer APIs, internationalization, etc, but there's no huge jumps that I've seen, or really compelling reasons to upgrade. Of course I will, as I'm a sucker for pretty much any upgrades :) In fact, I'm looking for the Ubuntu packages now :)

Congrats to the GNOME developers and contributors on another great release!

GNOME 2.24 Released

Well, the latest in the GNOME stable series appeared today.... the GNOME 2.24 Release Notes are online and have details of all the gnomey goodness in this release.

I'm not hugely impressed with the release (based on the notes) so far, it's definitely evolutionary, a new messanger tool included, tweaks to some software, tabbed file browser, new/better screen controls, new backgrounds (is this really such a big thing that it makes the release notes?!), and other stuff along the same lines. Maybe it's just that GNOME is a mature platform and there's not a huge amount of improvements you can make. I see this as a similar problem in Windows and MacOS as well...

Still, I'm looking forward to using this myself when the packages are up for my distro.... :)

GNOME 2.20 Released!

Well, after many months of hard work by the GNOME team, GNOME 2.20 is released and out in the wild. Ubuntu's new release (expected in just under a month) will have this, and hopefully other distros will get this new release in as well. Great work from the GNOME team... congrats!

The improvements in GNOME 2.20 include: Improved support for right-to-left languages; desktop search integrated into the file chooser dialog; convenient new features in the Evolution email and calendar client; enhanced browsing of image collections; simplified system preferences; efficient power management and incredibly accurate laptop battery monitoring. Developers receive more help with application development thanks to a new version of the GTK+ toolkit, improved tools, and a great new documentation web site.

The best new feature I see though, is this one, the mail client will warn you if you say you attached a file, and then forget to attach the file. Worth switching right then and there :)

GNOME 2.20 Release Very Soon... Beta Release Notes

Found the GNOME 2.20 Release Notes, or at least a beta. Not sure if they'll stay there, so get 'em fast... or wait the two days to read the final ones yourself.

Looking through I'm again fairly underwhelmed :( It seems like (again) a lot of small, needed fixes are there that will make life using the GNOME desktop that much nicer (ie: the taskbar button width changing bug is now gone, GDM has a 'leave a note' function, tweaks and UI improvements in Evolution, Epiphany now has smooth scrolling and favicon support, interactive PDFs work in eVince, Tomboy Notes has a sync functionality, some control panel applets cleanup)...

None of these fixes, even taken all together, makes me go whoah!. I suppose though it took Microsoft 6 years to update Windows XP to vista (which was a "whoah"). Maybe I'll have that moment in 2.22, or maybe 3.0 should it ever arrive.

That all said, I'll wait till the newest gnome is a) released and b) installed on my system and given a fair shake before I bitch too loudly. The people working on it are working their butts off and doing it all for free and for the love of it, and the changes they are making are making the Linux desktop that much nicer to work with each and every release. Heck, where was GNOME 6 years ago? Around version 1.4 which if anyone remembers that far back, was very different to work with :)

The Future of GNOME

— desrt Ryan Lortie writes about how i’m excited about the future of gnome. Basically a laundry list of the new stuff that's going into GNOME, showing how it's not stagnant with just boring incremental updates. However, some of the things he lists are... well, boring incremental updates (IMHO). Tracker as the new search engine, dconf as the new low level config manager, a new web rendering engine in Epiphany, etc all really sound like minor updates to components of GNOME, instead of something really big and exciting (again, IMHO).

Still, it is nice to see what's upcoming in my favorite desktop platform.

Some similar opinions to mine are in the OSNews comments for the story.

More GNOME / Mono Optimization

Aaron Bockover writes up a cool entry on Cracking down on heap abuse in Mono, telling how he did optimization work in TagLib-Sharp (a mono library for MP3 tagging) and moved memory allocation down from (for example) 103mb to 16mb! I honestly don't 100% understand a lot of what is actually going on, but seeing optimization work like this really is cool to me. Keep up the good work!

Tinymail Gets Smaller!

Philip shows off some of the work he's been doing on Tinymail, a stripped down, PDA oriented mail library based off of camel, what evolution (AKA a memory hungry pig) uses. Anyway, his patches and graphs show what happens when a group of people are dedicated to optimization. I'm pretty sure that you'll be hard pressed to find a mail client/library that uses under 12mb of memory when downloading 30,000 imap headers, much less 8mb! (8-ish, can't read the graph exactly).

Glad to see this stuff happening, hope some of it makes it back to Evolution so I can start using that again instead of always falling back to good 'ol Mutt for performance / convenience reasons.

Tagging Makes it to File Browsers Well, a file browser anyway. ChipBlog points to an implementation of tagging built right into the GNOME nautilus file browser. Not exactly revolutionary, but definately evolutionary, and an interesting way to address dealing with files and searching in the desktop.

/me waits for this feature to be announced for vista for 200567

Update - It's been pointed out to me that tagging of sorts is in Vista's feature list already, I remember that now. It's almost true I am a grass roots yuppie vista hater, and I'm also strong enough to admit when I'm wrong :) However that said I don't think that the tagging in vista will be quite that sweet and easy. I can't find any screenshots of tagging in vista, other than this shot which has the "keywords" at the bottom of the bottom window. There's also a google hit on this page which talks about security concerns with metadata. Anyone have better references?

That said, the person who pointed out I was a yuppie also noted that leaftag through nautilus wasn't released either (however, with the 6 month GNOME relesae cycle, I have faith that that'll be out before Vista.... ).

More GNOME 3.0 Ideas Nigel put up some really neat looking GNOME 3.0 Storyboard. The main ideas are that
  • Documents are first class objects
  • Search and tagging as the interface
I'm not 100% sure of the whole "open by searching" thing, but it's nice to see some ideas being thrown around.

GNOME 3.0 Ideas An interesting article on exploring future GNOME ideas over at footnotes. In the comments is also another page with some interesting / radical ideas for design of menus, window management ideas, filemanagement, and others. Make sure you check the bottom of the pages for more links to other interesting stuff. Anyway, they all have some interesting ideas, especially if combined with some of the hardware graphics ideas that are out there for gnome 2.12.

Hopefully some of these will be implemented, and not lost or politiced away.

Getting Beagle Working in Gentoo This is pretty cool. I've been watching Beagle for a while now, it's the desktop search solution to Spotlight (Mac) and WinFS (Windows). Check the screenshots, it looks and works pretty sweetly. There were also some flash demos posted recently. Anyway, someone put up a HOWTO Beagle 0.0.5 Installation. Note though that to get the latest mono in portage you will need to unmask gcc as well (not a big deal).

New Gnome Online Magazine Sure it's a lot of fawning over the new GNOME 2.8 release, but the Gnome Journal is now online and ready to go. The first issue has GNOME 2.8 and Evolution reviews, as well as some other stuff. It's not all all fanboy stuff either, which is nice. Of course, with a name like "GNOME Journal" there's going to be a bit of bias :)

Regardless of this it's still a nifty site with some good info (IE: learning that Evolution 2.0 will automatically do junk mail filtering if Spamassassin is installed locally.

GIMP 2.0 Usability Study Preview Calum pointed to a sneak peak at a GIMP 2.0 Usability Test. Interesting stuff. I have to admit that as I've been using photoshop more and more lately it seems that The Gimp is falling more and more behind in various respects... however, a lot of the fuctionality is still there. However, it's still not the most easily gotten used to program in the world in it's odd "look ma, no main window" paradigm. Also the incarnations on other platforms (windows, os/x) are pretty horrible performance wise, which leads to people discounting the GIMP as crap when it's not really it's fault (ie: the stupid click to focus problems under os/x).

In other GIMP news, "Film-GIMP", a version of the gimp designed for 16 bit images, film and other such like is now (well, probably really old news) known as CinePaint. Hope they can update this to use the new 2.0 release UI.

Improving GNOME File Management Arvidn has some good ideas on how to improve file management in GNOME. Ideas include good defaults for Pictures, Music, etc, less need for the user to know "stuff" (ie: the user just wants to listen to their music, not care about what programs they are using etc), and making some of the file management options (load/save dialog) a bit smarter. Lots of comments there and connected with the original osnews story.

Desktop Tape This proposal made it onto one of the GNOME devel lists. It's for desktop tape, which is:
A desktop Tape would homogenise multiple desktops into one whole: rather than moving from screen to screen, you move smoothly along a long, 'infinite' horizontal space, like several screens glued on to eachother; or, like a long tape.
A simple idea, but still fundamentally different than it's nearby neighbors, the virtual desktops. I'd be interesting in giving this a try or seeing it implemented. I'd have to use it a bit before I'm sold though :)

GIMP 2.0 Released Well dayum, I didn't even notice that GIMP - The GNU Image Manipulation Program version 2.0 was finally released. Of course, this isn't a huge impact on me, as I've been using the 1.3 series for ages. Still, it's nice to see it's finally out, and hopefully now they can start getting ahead with whatever 2.1-3.0 have in store.

Nifty vids of some of the new features here.

The graphics landscape has changed a bit since the 2.0 series started, and the wider acceptance of digital cameras and amateur photographers are showing a need for graphics applications aimed specifically at that market (ie: Adobe Elements, MS Digital Image whatever, and so on). Maybe GIMP could be spun off so that a different UI could take advantage of all the technology behind it, but be focused more on digital cameras and imaging than a full blown image program.

Expos� for GNOME? Expocity is a hack that was proposed yesterday for inclusion into the Metacity (GNOME window manager) CVS tree. It probably won't surface for a while in any of the releases, but if you're using GNOME 2.5.x out of CVS you may get a chance to play with it soon.

I'm pretty sure it's not nearly as pretty or lickable as the real Expos�, but it does thumbnailing and automagically shows you all your windows. This combined with the new XServer stuff might bring the Apple eye candy a bit closer for Linux users (Windows folks will still have to wait until [2006 or whenever] Longhorn is released.

Ximian Desktop 2 Review A very good ximian desktop 2 review over at Nicely done, with screenshots and some good critiquing of the install process and some of the niggly bits that are as of yet unfixed. I also installed this not that long ago and am continuing to use it on my pII-700 work machine (no XD2 for gentoo on my home box yet). I threw up a quick review a bit ago for all ya'll.

To be honest though, some things in Linux/GNOME are beginning to piss me off. There were a flurry of posts over the last couple of days on the gnome-desktop-devel list about the gnome clipboard, and how to fix it (you can't copy from an app, close the app, and paste... the app has to stay open). All I could think was "this is what is still trying to be fixed???!!!" Gnome is in a 2.2, almost 2.4 release, and the GTK toolkit has been around now for years, and the clipboard still doesn't work "properly" for text (we're not even talking about graphics here yet)! WTF?

That doesn't stop me from using it every day in a desktop environment though, because I still feel it's better than the alternatives.

From: Philip Langdale 
Subject: [Galeon-devel] Galeon 1.2.8 and 1.3.2 released!
Hi all!
After a couple of months of quiet, we are happy to announce the release
of new version of galeon from both the stable and gnome2 branches.
They are:
Galeon 1.2.8 "Gettextize me captain!"
Galeon 1.3.2 "Stop calling us dead, or we'll haunt you"
They both support Mozilla 1.3b, the latest release (and Galeon 1.3.x
requires at least Mozilla 1.3a) and feature bug fixes and 1.3.x also has
some nice new features. In the interest of brevity, the release notes
can be found with the files in our sourceforge area, if you follow the
links above. We currently have source tarballs up with rpms on the way.

Abstracting the Gnome Desktop from the File System There is a great article entitled Abstracting the Linux Desktop from the File-system which details how you use the desktop, and how GNOME has a good start, but really isn't using what they have to the full potential. This thing sounds like Engel wrote it or something! :) Lots of good idea, examples, and ways to work better.
Do you ever hear complaints from OsX users about the OsX file-system? Is the OsX file-system any more intuitive than the Linux one? Do you even know anything about the OsX file-system? Will you ever know anything about the OsX file-system? Probably not. Microsoft have added the My Documents Folder to Windows... Apple have abstracted the desktop from the file-system in OsX... Which OS is acclaimed for being intuitive and easy to use?

Gnome 2 Review OSnews has a review of the new GNOME 2 environment. I hate to say it, but I agree with him on a lot of his points. I'm in GNOME 2 right now, and while it's usable as a desktop, it's nowhere near as nicely integrated or mature as KDE, and feels far less featureful than the GNOME 1.4 release. Hopefully now that it's out there, the developers, users, and usability people will fix all the silly little bugs that are there (ie: applets not obeying Fitts' law (though the menus on the panel do), lack of decent config options for many things, and letting go of the "less is always better" mentality towards preferences, as well as adding some better tools to use within the GNOME environment (I can configure my kernel from withing KDE3, but I can't even control a sound server or pretty much any system stuff from the stock gnome2 tools).

Anyone else have any opinions on the new release?
