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.

For sure Gnome has come a very long way. Back in the 1.x days(screenshot 1) it was something I avoided more then anything. CDE rocked my *nix desktop back then. But after 2.0 a lot changed! suddenly it was something extremly pretty and usefull. Go Gnome!
