Gnome After all the debate, gtk# will most likely find its way into GNOME. "The release team has completed its second meeting to try to finish the new module decisions. And, after all the long threads on d-d-l and the many discussions amongst ourselves trying to determine community consensus, we finally have the decisions. In summary: orca, alacarte, and gnome-power-manager are in; gtk# and tomboy are in, assuming the issues mentioned are resolved; sticky notes becomes deprecated, assuming tomboy issues are resolved and gets in." Update: Elijah Newren emailed me concerning an important aspect of the current decision, and asked me to highlight it. So, read more!

As others have pointed out, your computer is 7 years old, but more importantly, these design decisions will affect upcoming releases of gnome, to run on upcoming distributions. I'm sure a release of gnome 5 years ago would have been plenty fast enough on your computer. Vista certainly wont be, and neither would mac os x (anti-piracy restrictions asside) be. Linux is no different. Don't compare gnome today with operating systems 5 years old its no surprise they run differently.
