Planet Gnome

You know, I really thought that Planet Gnome was all about developing... Gnome applications, frameworks and infrastructure. Silly me. Instead, it's been taken over by a whole lot of PC crap - the latest of which is that Mark Shuttleworth said that he wants to make Ubuntu such that it's "easier to explain to girls". This really put the cat amongst the pigeons, and they are still commenting about it now.

Honestly, I can understand the controversy over RMS's presentation at the Gran Canaria Desktop Summit, which really was sexist, but it appears that it has sparked a wave of self-righteous indignation amongst Gnome people. Seems quite ridiculous.
