I don't want it to be anything. I have no interest in closed software
on closed hardware. I'm disappointed people are praising it on a LUG

I don't see why it seems to be accepted that Apple makes good designs.
Good hype is what they make.

Unity, Gnome and KDE need to buck up and make something that favours
function over form. After all, that's why we use Linux - because it
works better, right?
