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.

These people also made the stupid decision to have network-manager store all network information in a directory that needs root access by default. So if you are making a system for people that do not (and should never) have root/sudo access then they cannot even connect to wireless.

Why the hell would they require admin rights just to connect to an open access point shows a level of incompetence that betrays system security and any level of understanding of how computers are used.
