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.

Whoever coined the old saying that it is better to ask for forgiveness than to ask for permission didn't intend it to work for software development. Ramming new concepts down the throats of users without clear goals and meaningful milestones is asking for alienation.

Gnome 3 missed the mark, KDE has been horrid for many years, so now I use Xubuntu with XFCE. Enough said.
