I know this has been mentioned by Kerberos at Piestar.net, but then I also realize that we just don’t have enough Lunduke-bagging over here.
“But, just the same, I have immense respect and admiration for what the teams behind these desktop environments have achieved. They have thrown out the conventional wisdom of what a 'desktop’ is and built the user experiences that they felt needed to be built.”
Well, that’s fair enough. But, hang on – there’s more:
“Some of the big new and exciting changes? Some applications can run full screen and your desktop can now be a row of icons that launch applications (just like iOS devices).
I’m not kidding. Those are two of the top demo-able, new features. Features taken from a mobile OS (iOS) and forced into a desktop OS.”
So, his argument is essentially that when Canonical forces a mobile interface (i.e. Unity) into the desktop space, that’s admirable, but when Apple does the same thing with iOS, that somehow comes across him as a joke. C’mon, Bryan – double-standard is one thing, but espousing it in such a blatant way is another.
And you expect LHB or anyone to take you seriously?
