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 was a die-hard KDE fan and always thought Gnome sub-par. However, I learned to accept Gnome after openSUSE started pushing KDE 4, and a subsequent switch to Ubuntu. Now that the purists have spent their time telling us how we should work, we moved on and made both. KDE and Gnome irrelevant. I'm currently typing this on one of my two Android tablets, which have taken over as my main computers at home. I still have a Wintendo computer running along with a paleontology my DMZ running Debian. The Debian system is used mostly to proxy and running things like Android development. It is running with lightweight OpenBox.

Good bye Gnome, I still fail to understand why it was needed to compete with KDE just over the Qt license.
