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.

Getting on par with Windows

This looks like a good release, some things are what Windows 98 could do, and are long overdue.

The PST import into Evolution is what interests me the most. Now if i could just sync evolution with my P910i, i'd make the switch to a Linux desktop. I'm a C# dev, and monodevelop beta 2.0 looks pretty good so far.

I know they talk about "the year of the linux desktop", i think once it happened, we will realise. There are things in this gnome release which push us forward to "the year of the linux desktop".

I don't believe in a "year of Linux desktop". I think it will be more of an evolution than a revolution.
