X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

@Thom:
Gnome is in bad shape? Why are Sun Microsystems (Linux or Solaris JDS), Redhat, Novell (SLED), and the latest version of Debian (Etch) all defaulting to it? Since these companies together encompass a large majority of the corporate gnome backing they might have a better idea than you do.

This is not a flame or a poke against KDE, but come one Thom... Gnome 3 is more of a concept than anything. Take a look at how many things have moved *from* the gnome Topaz page and are now fully implemented and *working* features. Gnome developers are taking the stance of solid incremental progress instead of something radically different.

Sorry, gnome is doing fine as long as there are companies willing to hire people to work on it full time.
