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.

Obviously you just type your password into any box that asks for it. Try creating a new account without sudo rights and see how far you get.


You shouldn't be able to create delete accounts without admin privileges - do you think you should? I'm with Soulbender on this one.

The need to to have admin privileges to join a wireless network was an Opensuse problem (KDE is the default desktop) I guess related to YAST, not a Gnome 3 problem.

Obviously if you are going to change network settings across multiple users (such as changing the default wireless) you need admin privilege so obviously a non-admin account is not going to be able to do it and rightly so.

You seem to be talking nonsense or perhaps you like the way Windows 9x works?
