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.

My idea of nirvana for a DE would be the gnome desktop redone with Qt. I really don't like kde's obtrusive interface, but I do prefer the toolkit over gtk.

I want the same gnome interface and gnome programs - in Qt.

I know, I know, I'm dreaming....

Gnome is still my desktop of choice, so it's definitely doing something right! I hope to see more progress with GTK!
