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.

Any chance of do getting integrated into base gnome? IMO it is the best launcher I have ever used on any OS, miles better then the "deskbar" applet


Gnome-Do is a Mono application.

Certain parties would LOVE to see Gnome-Do in base Gnome.

Gnome itself has, however, been insisting for some time that Gnome does not depend on the Mono libraries. In this statement they are correct ... currently.

So is it likely that Gnome will do an about-face and make Gnome depend on Mono?

You do the math.

Meanwhile, there is always Krunner ...

It is also a Quicksilver ripoff. Krunner at least has a bit of originality.

With the latest release, GNOME-Do is also a Mac Dock ripp-off --- well.... Quicksilver and Dock ripped-off and then fused... kinda a Mac mash-up. ;-)

Originality doesn't mean better though. Given the choice between an app that rips of a great app really well and an app that comes up with its own mediocre idea I'll take the ripoff.
