GNOME3 and openSUSE 12.1 – A conspiracy theory!

Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"On the last GNOME Team meeting there was a small topic to check
if it would be interesting to have a GNOME2 spin for the upcoming
12.1 release of openSUSE. It was decided not to provide a GNOME2
spin and somehow this suggests that GNOME2 is dead for openSUSE
(unless someone takes the job in).
"One of the interesting things that poped during this meeting
was the fact that GNOME3 has a 'fallback mode', or at least that's
how it became to be known among GNOME users, press and competitors.
It's not really hard to understand that 'fallback' became a
connotative form that throws in a lot of negative energy, much in
the way that it seems to be an unwanted 'feature'.
