Long story short, I setup KDE plasma mobile in lxc with a cyanogenmod back

hey, let's install gnome into that lxc container too. Added it to the display
manager, and low and behold, gnome 3.20 worked with little effort. Yes, a
good amount of tweaking is necessary to make it useable on the screen, it is
not perfect out of the box by any means.

Question now is, since gnome will run similar to how KDE plasma mobile is
doing it, was any discussion ever held on pushing into the mobile space?
Obviously there's no dialer, SMS tool, etc. The shell itself could be tweaked
to better fit the small, higher resolution, screen. I realize there was a
mobile/embedded initiative awhile back, but as far as I can tell it was
gnome-list mailing list
gnome-list gnome org

The nearest I have seen is Tizen, based on wayland and EFL/html5. It does
support GTK+ .

It's reassuring to know that if you behave strangely enough, society will
take full responsibility for you.
