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.

"With all the excitement surrounding the new KDE 4.x, it would be nice to see a little excitement coming out of the Gnome camp about now;

Well, I must say that "excitement" is an interesting word to use. "Spin", "Propaganda", and "Hype" seem more accurately descriptive terms to me. You wan't Gnome to spend 4 years taking 10 steps back and then another year (and counting) trying to catch up to where they were before?

The evolutionary vs revolutionary strategy of Gnome development is part and parcel of the professionalism you refer to.

If you're going to quote me and then seem to belittle me (as is your usual modus operandi,) please don't "forget" to include all of my words so as to keep what I said in context. You'll notice that I said "albeit not too much excitement mind you..." which clearly indicate my desire to see Gnome progress a bit faster but without the major shakeup that took place when KDE moved from 3.x to 4.x.
