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.

I also liked the design ideology that one Gnome application did only one thing and it did it well.


That's the Unix design ideology and you can find it everywhere on your Linux down and up the stack. On the commandline, in your Webbrowser and on your desktop may it be KDE, XFCE or LXDE.
