As long as he does not drop GTK
by Mephisto on Sun 10th Oct 2004 11:31 UTC

I am less worried about Gnome than GTK. I use FVWM now anyway, but I do use some Gnome programs I would need to find a replacement for. GQView, Gedit, plus occasionally Abiword, gnumeric, and Galeon. I say occasionally because I principally use OO.o and Firefox. Heck on my laptop I removed KDE and just left QT.

I don't really consider Dropline an option, it is too intrusive in non-Gnome related things for my taste.
