GNOME - creating ripples in the Linux eco-system

Sri Ramkrishna makes the argument that GNOME's off the beaten style of development are ripples that create opportunities for interesting problems for the eco-system to solve.

GNOME tends to be a controversial project, their design and technical decisions create ripples that affect the Linux eco-system. Whether good or for ill, GNOME's decisions creates opportunities to solve interesting problems by pushing a 'just works'. The talk will involve a retrospective of GNOME's initial path and how they changed the Linux eco-system today and contrast today's design and how things will go further with integration with systemd.
