Gnome "We want to develop a free and complete set of user friendly applications and desktop tools, similar to CDE and KDE but based entirely on free software." Those were the opening lines of Miguel De Icaza's email announcing the GNU Network Object Model Environment, better known as GNOME, exactly (in my timezone) ten years ago, on 15th August 1997. They have come a long way from this, to this.

GNOME's 2D GUI looks as tho' its from the Windows 98 era designed by high school kids in a GUI comp.

The control panel is a ripoff from OSX, the apps are amateur and "cheap" in their design.

Where is the professional creative vision????
