Gnome Something's - once again - brewing within the GNOME project. While a mere suggestion for now, and by no means any form of official policy, influential voices within the GNOME project are arguing that GNOME should become a full-fledged Linux-based operating system, and that the desktop environment should drop support for other operating systems such as Solaris and the BSDs. I have a feeling this isn't going to go down well with many of our readers.

You simply can`t solve a problem better.

There is always a better way to solve a problem.

Definitely for something as complex as a kernel. Definitely for something as rapidly changing as the hardware our os's run on.

You reach a certain point of usability and you are "there" kindof, with a certain computing experience. Anyone who had an Amiga might agree.. Ubuntu beats that these days though, with a tweaked kernel. (be inspired -

Did I say Very smooth opengl in 2.6.39 and from earlier I know it can do about 0.33ms latency for audio.. (on mine atleast). Takes a bit of cpu, so the cpuconscious might want to reduce that though, but it says something about how good the system is.

And it`s still improving yes.. ;)
