I'm not confused as to what Gnome is, sorry for any confusion as to what I was looking at, the WORD ---> APP in the AppsVM.
AppsVM? What does Apps means in the Geek world? ----> APPLICATIONS
Sure you could break a DE down into calling it a Desktop Application but we should all know this is not really what a app is.
Go look at what the Wiki says about Software Applications; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_software
Go look at what the Wiki says about a Desktop environment; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment
No I'm not confused about anything, if we're going to use the word APP, then let's be TECHNICALLY CORRECT as to what that means!
To be honest if Gnome the actual DE is being used here then TECHNICALLY speaking there should be called a 'DeVM' and THEN the apps running under it as the AppsVM.
I don't know I guess QubeOS is trying to rewrite the book on what a DE & Apps are?
I'm sorry if I'm sitting on a KDE desktop then that is what it should be like any other typical KDE desktop based distro and Natilus has no place, UNLESS the end-user wants it.
Let's be HONEST here, as far as the geeks are concerned a lot of people have very strong feelings towards certain DEs and applications and many people, myself included LOATH Gnome and much of anything to even do with it for that matter.
So when building QubeOS you have to be careful who your target market is, are you going to try and build for anyone? Well newbies will have no clue, but if you're wanting to bring onboard a lot of Geeks from around the world then you might find this distro having a hard time gaining popularity.
Also let's not forget, Gnome 3 in the eyes of the Geek world is a BIG FLOP!
Let's also not FORGET one very BIG IMPORTANT aspect to Gnome, it's a dependency nightmare compared to KDE.
I've never seen any distro out there mix and match like this, so why really the need for QubeOS to do so?
If the end-user picks KDE for their install DE, then why can't QubeOS simply live in the world of KDE as it was meant to be? Of course as I mentioned before a lot of these distros will have GTK applications and a possibly a few gnome libs and dependencies, but no, not the ENTIRE Gnome if this is what you are talking about?
