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.

> OSS [...] is about devs making things that please themselves.
As a clear example, translations of OSS from English to French are done by people who already know English, they think about other users and do the translations.

Another clear example is that of many companies collaborating http://www.linuxfoundation.org/about/members to develop Linux, even employing representatives to manage it http://www.linuxfoundation.org/about/board-members so that is useful for all.
