Gnome GNOME 2.19.2 has been released. "This is our second development release on our road towards GNOME 2.20.0, which will be released in September 2007. New features are still arriving, so your mission is simple: go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it."

You are either missing the point or you just want to reply with anything. Gconf is not a way to change things. Yes, I AM using it, but that's not my point. My point is: the amount of settings you can set in Gnome via UI is way too low. People don't want to mess with gconf to set things up. Is this how you'd sell for example a TV to people: well, you can change channels on the remote, but you have to open it and use a screwdriver to set brightness and contrast? You need to realise that if Gnome/Linux is to be used by more and more people, people need to lose the geeky way of thinking about things, if you produce a product, it doesn't matter if you think it's OK, it's what customers think. Not everyone can compile a kernel, edit some .whatever file from terminal and use gconf to search and set things. Remember the MOM test, a VERY important part of every consumer product development.
