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.

why to use gnome anyway. Throughout the history i tried them almost all wm-s and these dreamy castles never convinced me i really need them. Fool's gold i'd call it.

blackbox, sawfish, windowmaker should suffice for anybody who's not completely lame.
.* bless them!

What's all these dreamy castles like mice and color monitors?

A black & white text monitor and punch cards should suffice for anybody who's not completely lame.

Every now and then comes up a guy saying 'just drop that graphical crap', and be happy with 'owm, iwm or zwm'. I find those posts kind of ridiculous and off-topic. Graphical interfaces have dominated personal computing & the desktop. Telling people that 'owm, iwm or zwm' would be better for them is the same as saying earth is a squared block in the old days. You can't tell you what's best for people and console although very helpful is not the cup of tea for the great majority computer users.
