If you got some link to the design(s) that would be fine since all I'm 
aware of is what Alexander and Lennart talked about in a bof in guadec 
last year but bottom line what I'm interested in to know the direction 
Gnome is heading in as well as ultimately what role distribution play in 
that direction.

Basically Is Gnome preparing themselves for the tablet generation that 
will be stepping out of schools in the next years?
