Bleak future for BSDs and Ubuntus of the world. #gnome

I intend on making systemd a hard requirement for the power plugin in gnome-settings-daemon

From g-d-d:

No, I don't plan to do that work either so I will take from it that GNOME is not interested by being distributed on e.g Ubuntu anymore. I will take note about that and it's a topic we will discuss at next UDS, let's see if the GNOME remix effort who started recently has people motivated by doing that work, otherwise I will suggest we stop making GNOME available since Ubuntu doesn't have the requirements to run > 3.8...

What a wonderful way to twist everything round.

Not really.  It's just another Linux-specific piece of crap that needs to be worked around.  Not too different from e.g. ConsoleKit or HAL.  It's been done many times before.

Also, given the Ubuntu is pretty much the only Linux desktop that matters - as opposed to e.g. Fedora, as RedHat has officially stated that it has no interest in Linux desktop - the cited statement looks rather silly.
