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.

The choice for KDE, Gnome2 or Gnome3 or Unity is for me very simple. It is the feeling I get working with it. Here they are:
KDE: Do what you have to do, and f*** off.
Unity: You are stupid. Let me help you.
Gnome2: Hello. How are you doing? Take some coffee while you are here.

I didn't try Gnome3. One look and I was gone.
I switched to Xubuntu (which uses Xfce as you probably know). It comes close to the Gnome2-experience but not quite.

Gnome 2 never offered coffee. It just was.

It was almost apologetic:

Yeah... I am what I am, what do you want for free? Here, have some ugly ass buttons to click. They'll do stuff good.
