"Some thoughts on the brewing Gnome3 controversy. (I should
really call it what it is: a disaster.)
I think what the KDE4 and Gnome3 folks are doing is that they
have picked Apple (and to a lesser degree, Google) UI products as
their role model.
That in itself is not a problem (at all) - the problem as I see
it is that they tried to achieve this by mimicking Apple products,
instead of implementing a high quality UI development process.
This distinction is very important and it has not been invented
by Apple: Swiss, German, (Dutch, etc.) industries have discovered
it hundreds of years ago and have been passing it on from
generation to generation ever since.
