I am about to head out to the Linux Collaboration Summit, so I won’t be online when GNOME 3 hits the tubes in a few hours, so I just wanted to offer my congratulations in advance to the GNOME 3 team for their wonderful achievement in delivering GNOME 3. 🙂

As many of you will also remember, GNOME 3 was something of a pipe dream when it was discussed way back at GUADEC in Stuttgart. With each following GUADEC the discussions would continue and at one point it felt like GNOME 3 would never happen, but in the last few years it has been incredible to see how the community really came together to form around a vision an not just deliver on it, but really deliver on it. The last few months in particular have demonstrated a feverish commitment to delivering a solid release, and this work has not just involved developers, but designers, marketing folks, web developers, advocates, testers, artists and more. Everyone has done such a wonderful job, and I just wanted to have a specific shout out to Jason Clinton for the videos on the website – awesome work!

Anyway, you folks should be celebrating, not reading my inane ramblings – go and crack open a beer and reflect on the success of delivering GNOME 3. Today is a clear indication that GNOME is stronger than ever. Have a great day, folks!
