"It is no secret that a very small minority of claimants face significant difficulties in their lives, such as a serious criminal history, or addiction to drugs or alcohol. Many of these people are single claimants in the private sector where rents are soaring. Others are socially housed and vulnerable to eviction due to the bedroom tax or other cuts to benefits. Eviction from social housing in London will now often mean exportation to private sector housing in the North.

I wish people would stop posting this shit to Slashdot. Still, it's true that there's less business interest despite it being technically really sound -- probably Qt is also pretty sound but has big name corporations behind it. As for GNOME designers making a desktop for their imaginary friends, well. I do think GNOME 3 is still a research project and has various stupid decisions encoded, but we can work around them all, it's free software! Something great will be built from it some day.

Banks and financial institutions received - and continue to receive - massive support from the public sector to overcome the crisis." "
