GNOME

akgraner writes “When Canonical made the decision to make Unity the default desktop, some questioned the GNOME/Canonical relationship. Adding fuel to this fire was the recent distribution split of revenue generated by Banshee. These decisions caused the Ubuntu, GNOME and even Fedora community members to ask why these things were done. In Dave Neary’s ‘Has GNOME rejected Canonical help?‘ post, he states, ‘I have repeatedly read Canonical & Ubuntu people say, “We offered our help to GNOME, and they didn’t want it.”‘ Neary gives examples in his post of what others have said to back up the ‘they didn’t want it’ claim by Canonical and Ubuntu people. Today, though, Shuttleworth responds on his blog. ‘Competition is tough on the contestants, but it gets great results for everyone else.’”
