Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

ridiculous squared. the second ridiculous part is the distro designer who carbon copied the problem.

linux distros are fishermen, not chefs. they make this great effort to pull stuff together... and then they're done. they're no good at producing a final result.

apparently all the good chefs are being paid to feed paying customers.
