So the recent GNOME 3.12 release has gotten a very positive reception. Since I know that many members of my team has worked very hard on GNOME 3.12 I am delighted to see all the positive feedback the release is getting. And of course it doesn’t hurt having it give us a flying start to the Fedora Workstation effort. Anyway, for the fun of it I tried putting together a set of press quotes, kinda like how they tend to do for computer game advertisements.
- “GNOME 3.12: Pixel perfect” “GNOME 3 has finally arrived” – The Register
- “It is the GNOME release I have been waiting for” – Linux Action Show
- “The Very Exciting GNOME 3.12 Has Been Released” – Phoronix.com
- “…. a milestone feature update for users …” – eweek.com
- “The design team has refined everything …” – omgubuntu.co.uk
- “One of the big Linux desktops is updated” – TheInquirer
- “High Resolution screens are best managed under Gnome 3.12” – laptopspirit.fr
- “One of the most striking innovations..” – Heise.de
- “has resurrected what was once the darling of the Linux desktop” – TechRepublic.com
Some of the quotes might feel a little out of context, but as I said I did it for fun and if you end up spending time reading GNOME 3.12 articles to verify the quotes, then all the better ;)
Also you should really check out the nice GNOME 3.12 release video that can be found on the GNOME 3.12 release page.
Anyway, I plan on doing a blog post about the Fedora Workstation effort this week and will talk a bit about how GNOME 3.12 and later fits into that.
