At GUADEC Karen Sandler gave a talk (not yet available on video I
think). At the start of GNOME 3.0, she got *loads* of flack regarding
the change. In most recent conferences she attended, she actually was
surprised to see how many people were using GNOME 3 (there were loads of
hands going up). I don't attend many conferences (just FOSDEM + GUADEC),
but found it interesting. I think Karen went to loads of conferences.

Then there was the Linus thing. He mentioned hating GNOME 3, then
briefly after that mentioned switching back to GNOME 3 again. What do
people remember or think he's using atm? And regarding Linus, he also
gave us (somewhat deserved) flack during 2.x :-P
