With Nokia licensing QT with more business friendly LGPL (same as GTK) is it beginning of end of Gnome ? To say the truth I never liked Gnome its like underpowered ugly duckling whose Corporate backed Gnome Foundation (Due LGPL GTK license ) said with pride less features is actually a Good thing and users are too stupid to have more than one way of doing things !!! stupidity of gnome is exemplary for example no support of tabbed windows , one separate app for configuring each option (haven’t they heard about control panel ) ………its cheap effort to copy mac which so ugly that if Steve Jobs used he would prefer to be blind !!..Gnome is also issue of freezing up ……We were using Ubuntu (Gnome ) in office but it used freeze so often that initially we thought Graphic card driver was wrong , but problem was happening on 3 different machines and another machines with kubuntu (kde) were running fine so we suspected something else and we all switched to kde and the issue is history . Looks like ubuntu mobility project is thinking on moving to QT from GTK
I have been long time user of Kde but only time i was disappointed with KDE when they release KDE 4.0 which was utter failure but with KDE 4.2 they are back in game …….I hope KDE 4.X series soon stabilizes as legendary kde 3.5 series .
Gnome folks I suggest either you give up or alteast don’t make Gnome as Ugly as its is now
