Perhaps more *DE upstream developers would be more willing to join and
if their *DE was competing on an equal ground against other *DE.
It's no rocket science to realize that the argument you gave is most
likely the reason
for them staying away from the Fedoraproject.
They simply don't feel welcome @ the Fedoraproject.
Why is it so hard to abandon the "Default Desktop" concept and name it
Gnome has it's loyal fan base just like the other DE's have theirs.
Innovation is not going to stop for the Gnome project or Fedora in
whole if happens to be renamed.
The users that already use Gnome will continue to do so.
Earth wont stop spinning..
What are everybody afraid of ?
