Gnome GNOME hacker Seth Nickell has written a lengthy PDF and accompanying blog post with a number of very interesting ideas for GNOME 3.0. I pondered putting this up on the front page, but since that usually only attracts the "It's not what I'm used to so it sucks"-crowd, I decided to put it up here. Be sure to read the blog post, the PDF, and the comments on the blog post to get the entire picture.

People has been saying the same shit since KDE 2 and look at the situation now.

GTK+ still dominates, GNOME dominates, KDE developers have the technology but don't know what to do with it.

That was also when Qt was under the split license which was the main complaint against it. Qt also wasn't as far ahead technically.

No, the story is the same, at that time the split license wasn't a problem to all the trolls because according to them the GPL was the true free license, in KDE 3, we have the "Kparts" and "DCOP" propaganda, all failed.

Is not enought to have a toolkit that can do the "80%" of your work when the rest are bad desitions and ignorance in usability.
