Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

RE: Works for Unity too

And don't forget Kubuntu. I've been running it for the last 6 versions, and it keeps getting better and better. (Runs solid and fast on everything from my 90's Powerbook G4 to my 6 core custom desktop)

While I know next to nothing about Mint, Ubuntu has such traction currently, I've found I save a significant amount of headache by using a variant.

Right now the biggest disclaimer I feel I need to give Kubuntu is that they switched their package management GUI to a new project 2 or 3 versions ago, so it still has the occasional glitch. (I typically just use the apt command line utilities, but then again I'm a reformed Gentoo user...)
