[sugar] Supporting desktop applications, extending the EWMH spec
Sun Sep 21 17:01:41 EDT 2008
My impression, based on historical conversations with the parties
involved is that there are a bunch of hackers who feel that we did
ourselves a disservice by dropping _so much_ backwards compatibility,
specifically with Unix filesystems and desktops, in exchange for
cool ideas. The feeling is that had we traded compatibility for features
less aggressively then there would be many more hackers available to
help write the features since there would be many more hackers who felt
it was possible to live within Sugar.
This is just an impression, however.
