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.

I think some people in this thread are mistaking the local key-store password request with a gksu elevation. They are not the same thing.

I'm with the original poster. It's not like this *now*, but I remember having to enter my password just to change the time zone on Ubuntu (KDE in fact, but I guess it has less to do with DEs as with the system itself). Or to attach a second display.

And this relates to Network-Manager exactly how? Changing the system timezone does (or did) indeed require root but it's not like it's something you do a lot.
NM has never required root password.
