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.

Originality doesn't mean better though. Given the choice between an app that rips of a great app really well and an app that comes up with its own mediocre idea I'll take the ripoff.

Very true. Besides, which app nowadays does _not_ borrow (or "rip off") any single idea from some other app? Every OS also borrows ideas from eachothers.

Point is; it is OK to borrow something or even almost everything if you do it well and it's actually good for the end-user. If you copy something just to try to benefit something yourself then it's not.
