Ubuntu 18.04 To Ship with GNOME Desktop

In case you missed, here is a very hard to digest and interesting
article by Mark

Interesting quote from article is : "I took the view that, if
convergence was the future and we could deliver it as free software,
that would be widely appreciated both in the free software community
and in the technology industry, where there is substantial frustration
with the existing, closed, alternatives available to manufacturers. I
was wrong on both counts.
In the community, our efforts were seen fragmentation not innovation.
And industry has not rallied to the possibility, instead taking a
‘better the devil you know’ approach to those form factors, or
investing in home-grown platforms. What the Unity8 team has delivered
so far is beautiful, usable and solid, but I respect that markets, and
community, ultimately decide which products grow and which disappear."

Would love to have a community discussion on this!

Kind Regards,
