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.

Could the Android GUI eventually find it's way onto a Linux distribution?


Not with the typical Java hate Android gets.

Yes, this is a fair point. :-(

With Mono operating under Gnome and the NDK being available for Android as well I wonder why there isn't a side project *somewhere* for this?

I guess I'll just stick with Xfce. *shrugs*

Because for Google the NDK is only meant for games, port "legacy" code, or optimizing parts of the code.

Most the Android APIs available to C and C++ code are actually C wrappers around JNI calls back to the Dalvik.
