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.

Every now and then comes up a guy saying 'just drop that graphical crap', and be happy with 'owm, iwm or zwm'. I find those posts kind of ridiculous and off-topic. Graphical interfaces have dominated personal computing & the desktop. Telling people that 'owm, iwm or zwm' would be better for them is the same as saying earth is a squared block in the old days. You can't tell you what's best for people and console although very helpful is not the cup of tea for the great majority computer users.
