Honesty, if Ubuntu ships Eoan with GNOME Software 3.30 again, I'm going back to Debian.

*Realises everything in Sid is still at 3.30*

Uuuuh maybe Endless? What about Arch?


@mjog Honestly, it's all bad. Fedora is the least bad in this respect, but has a lot of weird shit too (logo extension, that horrible installer, etc.)

@tbernard *emoji for dumpster fire*

A minimal bootable image based on the FDO runtime is starting to sound really good right now...

@mjog @tbernard /me remembers [1] is a thing and that somewhere we have a gnome vm.

But there's so much left to be done and blocking this :/

@alatiera A blog post summarizing the current state and letting people know how they can help could be nice.

I bet a lot of people in the GNOME community don't even know about this.

@tbernard That statement is true for soooo many things :D. We kinda need a person working on blogposts / status updates full time across the whole project.

@tbernard @mjog running ArchLinux here, it is quite good. You just don't get the integrated experience out of the box.

You always need to spend some time learning on ArchWiki how to configure the components Gnome sits on.

@tbernard @mjog however most of the things works out of the box as Gnome just needs the default configuration shipped by the upstream.

@amdg2 @tbernard How does that old saying go? Debian for the policy, Arch for the wiki, something else for the something? :)
