X11, Window Managers In 2002, both KDE and GNOME released their last major revisions; KDE released KDE 3.0 on 3rd April, while GNOME followed shortly after with GNOME 2.0 on 27th June. For the Linux desktop, therefore, 2002 was an important year. Since then, we have continiously been fed point releases which added bits of functionaility and speed improvements, but no major revision has yet seen the light of day. What's going on?

How the hell is tomboy innovative? It's a freaking sticky note program, EXACTLY like the 10000 sticky notes program before it.

I could barely tell the difference between tomboy and the other sticky note program for GNOME.... except the GNOME sticky note program loaded and ran faster.

The innovation in Tomboy, if you didn't know, is the Wiki-like linking system to connect notes together. If you find programs like that useful or not is up to you.

...and if you know of a windows equivalent that is both free and as comfortable as Tomboy, please, share: my girlfriend would sorely need it ;)

Wiki like notepads are not an innovation. They exist on a lot of platforms. My personal favourite cross platform ones are:

planner-mode: http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/emacs-en/PlannerMode

and

org-mode: http://www.emacswiki.org/cgi-bin/emacs-en/OrgMode
