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 think the underlying toolkit (Qt) helped enormously in this case. TrollTech and later Nokia were already adding support for declaratively defined touch interfaces via Qt Quick.

KDE could quickly leverage Quick for touch interfaces, and there already is a sort of separation in the Qt toolkit between the old Qt (desktop) widgets and Qt Quick.
