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.

To say that it is better financed is also just ignorant. GNOME is the standard desktop on most commercial distributions. Paid developers work on GNOME, including GTK+.


Right because GTK is just so well financed

Their last news update was in 2009:

This is the same wishful thinking that people have been using since GTK+'s inception. It hasn't happened yet and GTK+ and GNOME have only gotten stronger.


I didn't think Qt was worth using until version 4 so I could care less about what people used to think.

I'm actually not a big fan of KDE myself but I just don't see Gnome and GTK going anywhere. A task pooper isn't going to help them.
