I was sad to see that one contributor does not like GNOME anymore : http://pvanhoof.be/blog/index.php/2014/09/10/please-remove-me-from-planet-gnome. I guess there would have been better ways to express this however.
We (users) could argue Tracker is not the most succesful tech right now in the desktop ; we could especially argue lots of good stuff is happening to GNOME despite what some feel.
Why would one single desktop satisfy everyone? Let’s put rants aside. Would we see tomorrow while looking at the past?
