I wonder when +Lennart Poettering will greet his fans on mastodon? ;) I also heard a nasty rumor that he is a systemd shill.

+Swapnil Bhartiya observes an interesting direction in open source at least projects working on enterprisey type of technology like docker. It seems a shame that people have such a poor opinion of Linux tooling that they rather use them on Windows or OSX than on Linux. I understand that it is awkward to move to switch between platforms, but this is precisely why you should switch wholesale to Linux. But we do need to create an eco-system that encourages great applications. The bar of entry is too high.

That is exactly why GNOME has created Libre Application Summit (LAS GNOME http://las.gnome.org/) to organize and create that eco-system. We are getting there - with technologies like GNOME-Builder, OSTree, Meson and Flatpak (OK, and snaps too :-). We are leapfrogging over OSX and Windows by providing a builtin sandbox around our applications and addressing the issue of packaging that splinter our audience.

Now is the time for convergence, while cherishing our differences. Let's fix the bedrock of libraries and tools that our projects depend on and create something that will bring developers from the other platform over while pushing for excellence in our eco-system. Because we can't stay on the path we are currently at if we want to win. And man, I want to win so much that I'm sick of winning. :-)

AtSea using Bash on Windows for their docker demo to show support for both platforms. No one talks about Linux desktops.

Much faster way for people who want to get into GNOME. In just minutes, you'll be hacking on one of GNOME's applications! Great job by +Carlos Soriano and +Bastian Ilso!

X-files will be gone this weekend.. (saturday) from Netflix.. you have been warned!

The amazing +Bastian Ilso, Karen Sandler, and Simon-Claudius Wystrach have outdone themselves with the GNOME 3.24 release video!
GNOME 3.24 'Portland' is now on tape (and available in 13 languages)! See the new features in action and learn how they came to be in the GNOME release video. https://youtu.be/_Z1PAXiyTB0

A special for me since the release name is "Portland" named after the LAS GNOME conference that was organized by a number of us in the fair city of Portland last year!
GNOME 3.24 has just been released. Introducing an updated platform and applications including a number of major new features and enhancements as well as many smaller improvements and bug fixes. 3.24 represents another step forward for GNOME, and has much to offer both users and developers.
