Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

You do know that Vista and OS X are whole operating systems, and by that measure, they includes various services, a kernel, and other components that Gnome, being just a DE, does not supply, so of course they are more "bloated" then Gnome.

"Of course"? Of course not. Gnome depends on a bunch of operating system services to run. I never claimed to run Gnome with no operating system. Your nitpicking is uninteresting and stupid.

It's not nitpicking, it's a serious statement, you can't compare a DE to an entire OS, it just doesn't work that way, you can't even compare Gnome to Gnome on different FOSS operating systems, because Gnome on BSD is going to be a hell of a lot less "bloated" then on Debian, which would be more bloated than on Debian.

This whole site is based on nitpicking, you better get used to it.
