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.

It is how KDE do, and it work quite well. MOC are not perfect, but they give some muscle to C++, bringing it closer to C# and Java#. I don't think you will change your mind unless Gnome devs admit their way is a not go, but that may never happen. Vala was some kind of attempt to solve those problems, but if it is not part of Gnome3/GTK3 default, then it may never bubble up as a viable alternative to C. And while we talk about dirty hack in both Qt and Gnome, I think the Gnome implementation of Objects in a non-object language is much worst than MOC-files.
