Gnome GNOME hacker Seth Nickell has written a lengthy PDF and accompanying blog post with a number of very interesting ideas for GNOME 3.0. I pondered putting this up on the front page, but since that usually only attracts the "It's not what I'm used to so it sucks"-crowd, I decided to put it up here. Be sure to read the blog post, the PDF, and the comments on the blog post to get the entire picture.

That's ridiculous. GTK+ applications far outnumber GNOME applications. There's even another entire desktop using GTK+ (XFCE). GTK+'s future is independent of GNOME.


GTK could not be successful without GNOME. Sure XFCE uses GTK but it isn't the default DE of major distros. If Ubuntu dropped GNOME for KDE then you could expect a major drop off in new GTK projects.

The main reason to use GTK is the GNOME userbase. It isn't because of technical proficiency.
