Gnome "During this years GUADEC Red Hat developer Havoc Pennington proposed his idea of an 'Online Desktop' to the developers of the GNOME project. Through deep integration with web services and 'zero-maintenance' the Open Source client aims to get the 'perfect window to the Internet'. During GUADEC Andreas Proschofsky had the chance to talk to Pennington about advantages and possible problems of the Online Desktop concept, the necessity of Windows-support and about Red Hats 'return to the desktop'."

You don't have to be so harsh, now do you? Not many regular users now what apps are actually part of GNOME and what aren't. The fact just is that nowadays all the major distros (and many minor ones too) do compile Nautilus with Beagle enabled and so forth, so of course it's very easy for one to assume Beagle is part of GNOME, is it? And if the distro compiles it with Beagle then the user doesn't really have much choice about it.
