future of GNOME ... what's the big picture?

to all GNOME users:

this document you should know ... maybe you already do, but for the not-knowers:

Thanks, I hadn't read that yet. I can't wait for the Gnome 2.4 release on the 10th and there are some very interesting features coming to future Gnome releases. I really like the direction Gnome is headed.

Re: future of GNOME ... what's the big picture?

Well I just started using Gnome recently and I'm really enjoying it. I didn't know it was so smooth.

I like KDE also but I think it's beginning to get too bloated, IMHO!

Just a thought.

Re: future of GNOME ... what's the big picture?

Yeah, I do agree that KDE is getting a bit bloated, I really don't like integrated web browser and file manager(reminds me too much of winblows).  The problem generally is that not many people know a lot of the things that Gnome can do, like someone was completely amazed that I have a transparent bar running along the bottom of my screen with icons to launch apps.  I really hope 2.4 continues to provide a great desktop environment.

Yeah, I posted about 2.4 in "General Discussion", because im a forum dyslexic.

PLEASE build packages. I dont want to.  :evil:
