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.

Probably - but I can't help feeling Cinnamon is wrong, all it is is Gnome Shell with a few extensions. Mint certainly have a handle on what a lot of users want, but if I could choose I'd have the Gnome Shell folk work with the Cinnamon folk to produce a default Gnome Shell that the more conservative users want and evolve it from there.


Cinnamon wouldn't exist if it weren't for the actions of Gnome Shell people. I'd guess the Cinnamon people would much prefer to develop upstream, but I doubt the Gnome would welcome them..
