Gnome The GNOME team has released GNOME 2.26, the latest release in the 2.x release branch. As everyone knows, GNOME is a multi-platform open source desktop environment. The 2.26 release continues GNOME's policy of incremental updates to a stable base, and as such, it comes packed with a boatload of new features.

Great release! Each release GNOME gets *a bit* better. Looking forward to install next Ubuntu here. All partitions are prepared. GNOME development is accused to lay on the stagnated side, but I much prefer this than the competitors. Well, no wonder all major distros ship it as the default desktop.

Maybe I'm biased, but I always thought Slackware was one of the "major" distros. ;)

As for the GNOME vs X debate - I'm not even going to bother getting into DE flamewars when the whole point of Linux is freedom to choose.

Slackware isn't relevant here

Slackware's usage has been declining over time, and its remaining usage is mainly for servers, where users aren't using any desktop at all, or even X.

I used Slackware back in the 1990s.

You say that, but little more than 1 years ago, Slackware was my primary desktop
