Gnome The GNOME team has released GNOME 2.26, the latest release in the 2.x release branch. As everyone knows, GNOME is a multi-platform open source desktop environment. The 2.26 release continues GNOME's policy of incremental updates to a stable base, and as such, it comes packed with a boatload of new features.

I happened to have used Slackware back in 1999. It was much more stable than the popular Red Hat 5.2 at that time. Nowadays things changed, Ubuntu cannibalized the masses and now distros like Fedora and SuSE need to be catching up with them. But I really thank Red Hat, the one who pushed Linux installation to a whole another level. Each distro has its own contribution in Linux world, but as in life, some will fade away and some not.
