X11, Window Managers In 2002, both KDE and GNOME released their last major revisions; KDE released KDE 3.0 on 3rd April, while GNOME followed shortly after with GNOME 2.0 on 27th June. For the Linux desktop, therefore, 2002 was an important year. Since then, we have continiously been fed point releases which added bits of functionaility and speed improvements, but no major revision has yet seen the light of day. What's going on?

Slow release cycle a sign of maturity

These two products are stabilizing and maturing. The lack of someone coming along with a must-have update to the systems just indicates they've tackled most of the important problems.

My windows UI looks and works very similar to how it did in 1995. That doesn't mean the Windows bubble has burst.
