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.

Because I can't stand this stupidity of BREAKING everything apart ruining users experience. It moves the ANGER, and their arguments are so stupid, the facts are so harsh (that there was a huge back off on KDE because of 4th release), compleltely drives anyone mad, 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.
