Gnome GNOME 2.12 will be released to the world on September 7th, 2005, culminating 6 months of very exciting work by members of the project. A number of exciting technologies come together in GNOME 2.12 that will set the standard for free software desktops to come. Here is a sample of some of the outstanding work that has gone into GNOME thanks to its many contributors.

I still can't believe people think ClearType is "fuzzy". Give it about 30 minutes to let you eyes adjust to it. Tweak again. If it's still fuzzy, you have a bad monitor, or bad eyes. I have very sharp eyes and notice things most people don't, and ClearType looks better to me. I know inconsistencies in FreeType rendering that are not present inClearType, and that bugs me.

ClearType is superior to FreeType on LCD though, that's for sure. I think it's also superior on CRT when tweaked properly, but that's me.
