Dave pulls back the bathrobe on one of his fascinating projects. When he first mentioned GNOME and GIMP appearing at SIGGRAPH, I couldn’t help but wonder if this would lead to GNOME becoming a real life Movie OS. With Xgl and Compiz, it’s pretty close! We’re just missing the helpful but distant British accent sound theme and big red flashing ACCESS DENIED dialogues.
GNOME is already a favourite in digital imaging — Dreamworks uses GNOME desktops, Pixar has contributed to devilspie, Miguel appeared in Antitrust. I’m not sure that last one is really an accolade though… 😉
