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.

Animations are inherently useful as they can steer one's attention to a point of interest, they may provide extra insight into what is happening, and often without an animation you wouldn't even know if the computer is doing what you directed it to do.


On top of that, E17 can do some amazing things including 60fps animations and compositing with very little RAM and CPU usage, and consequently very little impact on the battery compared to static environments. I've put E17 on a 400MHz thin client with 128MB RAM and only the barest of 2D acceleration, and it performed flawlessly.
