Gnome The GNOME project has released GNOME 2.24 today. In case you're new here: "GNOME 2.24 is the latest version of the GNOME Desktop: a popular, multi-platform desktop environment for your computer. GNOME's focus is ease of use, stability, and first class internationalisation and accessibility support. GNOME is Free and Open Source Software and provides all of the common tools computer users expect of a modern computing environment, such as e-mail, groupware, web browsing, file management, multimedia and games. Furthermore, GNOME provides a flexible and powerful platform for software developers, both on the desktop and in mobile applications." GNOME 2.24 comes packed with changes.

Its going to be good times for the Linux Desktop with Linux 2.6.27(Pending) + X.Org 7.5 + Gnome 2.24 + OpenOffice 3.0(Pending) + FireFox 3.1(Pending) the 8.10 Distributions are going to be awesome. The 8.04 Distributions brought stability to so many needed features, but this is like seeing a race in slow motion everything is just going to hit at the same point.

I think other than smaller projects like nouveau and gnash. I cannot see how this setup could be improved. This has got to bring a lot of interest into the FOSS world.
