Clearly at this point the stress in my personal life and overcommitment in my professional life are leading me to say and do things that are hurtful to my friends and/or devalue what I’ve worked on over the past several years. And that’s the last thing I want to do, given that the success of GNOME is so important to so many things I believe in, and the friends I have here are some of the best I’ve ever made. So… I think I’m going to take a very brief break while I figure out better how to balance myself. Sucks, but sadly neither quitting my job nor dumping krissa :) are really viable options at the moment.

On a more upbeat note, this is one of the more interesting observations about the PC industry I’ve read in a long time. It’s not exactly new news, and I’m sure others have said it before, but it was the first time it registered with me.
