I have some thoughts on the future of #UI on non-mobile devices and the role that #FLOSS can play.

1. It seems that all proprietary software companies are de-prioritising their desktop OSes, in terms of focus and resources. Microsoft is doing weird tablet hybridisation and Apple is just porting iOS junk back from the iPad.

This creates a vacuum, as there is no modern desktop UI. Nothing's been done since roughly OS X. It's been 18 years. More than my whole adult life.

@dragnucs I’m not up to speed on Gnome, do you have any resource in particular to recommend on this? Last time I checked GTK was a nightmare.
