1984 Flashback

It is sad to see so many in the FOSS community using the decision by +Canonical as an event to dredge up hurt feelings. I want to commend +Canonical, +Mark Shuttleworth and all the others who worked on +Ubuntu Unity for having the courage to take the risk to try and build something better.

The ability to do your own thing in FOSS is both a strength and a weakness. It is now time to heal the old wounds not to bring out the verbal swords to make new ones. I, for one, am excited to see +Canonical and Ubuntu bring what they learned to the Gnome fold.

We should all be thankful for the freedom and remember that they are our brothers and sisters in FOSS.

The Verge: Ubuntu abandons its phone efforts, will switch back to GNOME.

Good to see this change. I hope this will allow some things to heal and help bring more focus to improving Gnome.
