<taylanub>did I get it right that the default GNU/Guix installation uses GNUstep? WindowMaker was mentioned...
<taylanub>if so, I wonder how "modern" it looks? I *personally* eschew the notion of pretty software, using full-screen Emacs most of the time, but unquestionably the "masses" care about it. another problem is hardware support of Linux-libre. I wonder if it's too ambitious in the short term to expect the kinds of people who would normally use Ubuntu or Elementary OS to find GNU attractive.
<taylanub>the ideal situation is to have them fully agree with free software ideals, but that seems implausible to achieve to be honest :( now if we had the technical edge on the other hand...
<DusXMT>I don't know if WMaker is the default (but I personally do use it), but it doesn't look modern. Indeed, its main point is to create an environment similar to the one of NeXTSTEP, so it's un-modern by design
<civodul>taylanub: i agree with you, but like you, i'm happy with my full-screen Emacs :-)
<civodul>i hope someone can work on the fancy stuff sometime later
<civodul>the default WindowMaker theme is not so awful to me, though
