Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

I just installed XFCE 4.8 and razor-qt 0.4.1 to play around in last night.

I really enjoying these smaller DE's but still miss the completeness that gnome offers. It feels safer knowing that GNOME has the complete application/applet/background processes under control.

What surprised me was that in spite of me not liking KDE, razor-qt is awesome! It's a young project but it's simple and to the point, any QT fans should check it out.

I will probably always default to GNOME because I've never really had any problems with it but if there's one thing GNOME needs, it's that GNOME OS / KDE SC direction.

Too many arbitrary changes occur out of nowhere for no real reason other than personal preference.
