seems that Red Hat is not as brave (or so reckless, depending on your perspective) and Debian and although the next major release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) will jump to GNOME 3, it will use the classic desktop mode by default , reports The H Open.
The news has been confirmed by Denise Dumas, director of engineering RHEL area, and the reason for using the new classic mode instead of GNOME GNOME Shell is the not cause problems for your user base Corporate : “The last thing we want is to disrupt the workflow of our customers,” stated Dumas.
account on Red Hat take almost a year conducting intensive testing for the launch of RHEL 7, including testing ‘usability’ which seem to have been decisive when taking the decision not to offer GNOME Shell by default. Nevertheless, the board of Red Hat extols the merits of the GNOME project, its vision and courage to innovate and, of course, GNOME Shell will be available for all users of the system, but not in at first sight (“that theirs are customers, not users”, you could add a bit of bad baba).
RHEL 7 will arrive in the second half of the year , with a date yet to be determined. The basis of Fedora 15, which as you will recall this distribution users, was the first to integrate GNOME 3 desktop environment. Also, the renewed system installer (Anaconda) will be part of the new features, among which are-although not detailed anything, facilitate direct upgrade between versions, one aspect that has never been very friendly.
So far the news, I can not take for closed without “twist” a bit. And we all know that the influence of Red Hat in the GNOME project is important. But how much? To what extent may have affected the situation? The situation I pose the following lines, I mean.
GNOME developers have remained firm in his direction with GNOME Shell, warning version after version of the disappearance of GNOME Fallback while many users out redundant alternatives, among which the Cinnamon Linux Mint, for what it represents-the always-classic desktop and it is based on GNOME 3, but will not remain so.
The reason (in my opinion, absolutely right) that was given to the creation of the new GNOME 3 classic mode was that GNOME Fallback did not measure, was little more than a temporary rivet was extending more than necessary . But, and this is the basic question, why? Expressly create a way classic after trying to impose
- Finally took into consideration the views of many-users?
I, of course, I have no response. That’s right, the ‘moderneces’ Shell and Unity (especially Shell) would not sink in certain segments, some had been clear for quite some time.yarpp-related-none” class=”yarpp-related
