Level 42?. No, I'm sure Pat thinks this is more fitting. As far as I'm concerned, systemd makes me feel this.

I think you are mistaken there. They are in the process of adopting systemd.

Yeah, that was my understanding, that Gnome was going to be systemd dependent, which would therefore effectively make Gnome Linux-only, as it's unlikely that the BSDs will incorporate systemd.

Only the session manager (GDM), not full GNOME.

To clarify that, systemd-logind provides all session management features to GDM from the time you enter your username and authenticate), until you shutdown.

Without it you won't be authorized to do things such as shutdown the computer. ConsoleKit used to provide this service until systemd-logind deprecated it.

I couldn't care less about GNOME. As the mainstream desktop distribution dropped it, GNOME is a thing of the past.

It will not become Linux-only, it will become GnomeOS-only. The developers already said, that GNOME will become an OS distribution itself and won't be compatible with anything.

look it up in wikipedia. there's an article about it.

NB, the term first came into my vocabulary (not being a native English speaker) through the classic 1976 film "Network", which was a contender for the Oscar and which has an imdb rating of 8.1.

Edit: to quench any speculations, i watched it much later than 1976

It is not just GNOME that is becoming systemd dependent.
From http://mate-desktop.org/

Quote:
Main changes in 1.6 are:

Systemd-logind support:
Added support for systemd-logind in mate-session-manager, mate-screensaver and mate-power-manager (now you can reboot/shutdown without ConsoleKit)
Hopefully, it is just an option for compilation.

Yes, it's not required for the MATE SlackBuild project which builds MATE 1.6 on Slackware. IIRC, one of the upstream developers said they do not intend to make systemd a requirement for MATE.

Edit: just confirmed with Stefano Karapetsas, one of MATE's primary developers in IRC. His response to my query: "systemd is and will be optional."

Yeah, I liked Gnome 2 just fine, but since Gnome 3 debuted, it has been dead to me.

It's been called for this week from GUADEC that GNOME 4.0 to be released in March of 2014 along with GNOME OS. That's not all of their ambitious plans but they think they can gain a 20% market-share by 2020 and they also have some other plans on their agenda.

Personally I think in 2020 almost no-one will even remember GNOME. Just ask regular people about CDE...

Wow. Things are pretty bad over there. It just goes to prove that PV made the right decision all those years ago. Although I didn't like it initially, KDE4 has certainly come a long way and has reached the stage where it is working pretty well for me. I couldn't imagine losing basic functionality as discussed in that bugzilla thread. The worst part seems to be the attitude of the developers.

I think jtsn is right. If they keep going the way they are, they're destined to lose most of their market share. Especially now that we're seeing projects like XFCE maturing nicely.
