Who exactly do you believe should be that dictator?
I think many of us remember the times when we had Seth Nickell and Havoc
talking "visionary" things about the desktop (even if they weren't
exactly "dictators"), it was very useful to see the direction we are
going to... any direction.
Currently the appearance is we do not have any direction beside "follow
upstream", but the upstream (GNOME) pretty much lack the direction also
(Havoc and Seth were "upstream").
So yes, I would pretty much like to see someone taking leadership and
defining a direction, a "vision". And if he is coherent and active, we
may be glad to call him our "dictator".
