Gnome The Gnome Project released version 2.12 yesterday. We had a quick look at it by using the latest Gnome Live CD (1.12-pre) and Foresight 0.9.0 (2.12 final) and here are our thoughts over 2.12 and Gnome's status in general.

Please replace all occurences of the word "user" in the article to "corporate user".

Seeing the way eye-candy is preferred by users on their desktop, GNOME is too stait-jacketed. With Sun, Novell, Redhat behind it primiarily, is is expected but it is important for the author to make this distinction.

I personally don't work with GNOME unless its a linux box I have to work on at my office. At home, I cannot imagine myself using it. it is too 'Big Brother'-ish IMO. Too much control on what you can do -- and cannot. Can someone tell me, for instance, how I can change the color theme of my desktop without affecting other things like widgets??
