加速主义：是指 GNOME 桌面继续做烂下去，导致社区继续分裂，并产生更多 Fork，由此实现用户的桌面自由。
LibreOffice wants to kill OpenOffice. Do you know why? It's because LibreOffice is controlled by a group of companies.
By killing Apache OpenOffice, they can monopolize the market of open source office suite (which is pathetic compared to Microsoft's market share).
This is an ultra-stupid move in the long run because of lacking of vision. What can they get?? Force a few nerds who still use OpenOffice to switch ?
They could have organized a campaign fight against Microsoft Office and bite Microsoft's market share, rather than eliminating a friendly competitor.
Fun fact, LibreOffice can import code from OpenOffice, but not reverse due to licence problem.
I told you so, 2021 edition
**And in not-at-all-unrelated news:**
Just to add insult to injury, it has recently come to my attention that not only are Gnome-screensaver, Mate-screensaver and Cinnamon-screensaver buggy and insecure dumpster fires, but they are also in violation of my license and infringing my copyright.
XScreenSaver was released under the BSD license, one of the oldest and most permissive of the free software licenses. It turns out, the Gnome-screensaver authors copied large parts of XScreenSaver into their program, removed the BSD license and slapped a GPL license on my code instead -- and also removed my name. Rude.
If they had asked me, "can you dual-license this code", I might have said yes. If they had asked, "can we strip your name off and credit your work as (C) William Jon McCann instead"... probably not.
Mate-screensaver and Cinnamon-screensaver, being forks and descendants of Gnome-screensaver, have inherited this license violation and continue to perpetuate it. Every Linux distro is shipping this copyright- and license-infringing code.
I eagerly await hearing how they're going to make this right.
Hahaha, yet another example of what GNOME are promoting is actually crap. Trying to copy snap but failed.
Fun fact: Snap already have nearly 4k applications, including server programs, development environments, commercial applications and WINE-based Windows apps.
Even tough GNOME has better engineers, but the vision of ubuntu is superior. Snap is trying to become a true universal platform, rather than GNOME apps downloader.
Snap also try to have the user experience of Mac App Store which is great for new users.
In contrast, Flatpak still use crap terminal user interface. Copy and paste command to install app, hahahaha. Only nerd will use command line.
Every editor's choice of Flathub is GNOME related app, and this is hostile to KDE applications. ( KDE solely contributed nearly 100 snap apps)
Commercial apps are also inevitable for actual user experience. We need easy to install Microsoft team and things like Zoom.
openSUSE -> Ex-chairman vs chairman
"I do not approve"
horizon-eda → The ONLY _1_ program that has advanced interface and was originally written in GTK3.
And his author must be very regretful for this decision. He will _enjoy_ the same pain in ass as GIMP which spend years for GTK3 porting.
"GNOME Circle" → Proof that GTK3/GNOME community didn't produce almost _ANY_ significant apps in the past 10 years.
Audacity, Scribus, GIMP, Inkscape, flowblade, Geany, Evolution are all coming from 10~20 years ago.
Awesome-gnome → Proof that almost _ALL_ apps born during GTK3 age are very trivial at least in UI.
那个用 Rust 重写的 Coreutils 和 GNU Coreutils 一样也是在各种封装 (g)libc，
我觉得 C 被取代的时间恐怕会特别特别晚。因为 B/C 当年是和 Unix 肩并肩开发的，天生适合编写操作系统。
就像数学里面的数字抽象出了物理世界的本质，C 同样对硬件进行了本质的抽象，同样的道理还有 Lisp 对逻辑的抽象。
这东西恐怕和 Zsh, Fish, Elvish... 取代 Bash 以及 Scalca, clojure, Grooby, Kotlin... 试图取代 Java 的尝试一样，虽然前者都号称更好，但是后者也没有坏到需要淘汰。。。
对 Nerd 来说，应该加三个选项：
1. 花费一年的时间赞一套自己的 Emacs 发行版(配置) 。https://github.com/redguardtoo/mastering-emacs-in-one-year-guide/blob/master/guide-zh.org
现在 Systemd, Freedesktop.org, Wayland, GNOME/GTK, pipewire 等一大堆重要的东西都被 Red Hat 控制/资助着。RedHat/Linux 恐怕比 GNU/Linux 更贴切一点。
所以下学期准备换成 Ubuntu 或者 ArchLinux。
虽然 Ubuntu 由于种种原因各种失败，但里面有好几个在和 Redhat 正面交锋 Mir <-> Wayland, Upstart <-> SystemD，Snappy <-> Flathub，Unity <-> GNOME，而且不止一次尝试改用 Qt，来摆脱对 GNOME/GTK 的依赖。还有他们最近在投资的 Flutter 多半会失败，但至少不是 RedHat 自家的 GNOME/GTK.
My toilet is blocked!
Have fun and play together~
