GNOME POPULUM EST

July 29, 2017

I gave a talk on the History of GNOME for GUADEC 2017. (Slides are available here, and hopefully the video feed will be posted soon.) It was a great trip down memory lane, and I really enjoyed putting this talk together. I didn’t include my final thoughts in the slide so I thought I’d include them in this post:

  1. First, we didn’t appreciate how much work this was  when we started. We have totally beaten win95, but the expectations bar has risen every year
  2. We have done a helluvalot of great work, and largely kept pace with expectations. This has been an amazing accomplishment and we should be proud of what we’ve done.
  3. The future for GNOME is more important and more promising then it has ever been
