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.

GNOME please, EAT KDE's lunch...

Why would you (or anybody else) want that? Why the antagonism? I use XFCE and GNOME, but that certainly doesn't mean I want KDE to fail. Quite the contrary, I want KDE to succeed and become as amazing as it possibly can. I want it to be become so amazing it makes me want to switch over. Because if it does then I get a better desktop to use, and who wouldn't want that?

Competition is good. Two desktop environments pushing and helping each other to become better is great. If for some reason one GNOME or KDE would fall by the wayside it would be a loss for all *nix users no matter what your favorite DE happens to be.

making me uncounciousnessly want this whole project to fail. Oh well that's the human part in us.


Wishing for any project to fail just to make you feel like your choices have been validated is retarded.

Breaking things to make the overall experience better is just progress. Apple went through it with OSX, MS went through it to an extent with WinNT/2K...then again with Vista when it comes to drivers and a shedload of applications.

Sometimes a little revolution is a good thing...you just need some patience. But hey, stick with Gnome if that floats your boat. Nobody cares.
