  • Hello To GNOME 2.32!

    Phoronix: Hello To GNOME 2.32!

    GNOME 2.32 has been released this afternoon. This release, which was once supposed to become GNOME 3.0 until its release was pushed back to next March, is the last for the GNOME 2.x series. GNOME 2.32 incorporates a variety of package updates and other work, though more of the excitement has been postponed to GNOME 3.0...

    The obvious question

    Since this is mostly bug fixes, will it be on the Ubuntu 10.10 release CD? What about the release candidate CD?

      Ubuntu's release schedule is based on GNOME's, so... yeah.

        EoG finally renders svg properly!

        This bug was finally squashed. Having played with it a bit, the solution needs to be accelerated.

                And I wondered how many posts would be needed for a KDE vs Gnome war to start...

                  LOL

                  It is ok. This antagonism between those main DE is fun...

                  Anyway, for those who wonder, see you in April when GNOME will REVOLUTIONISE the desktop metaphor instead of blindly copying Windows...

                    Crushing? Yeah crushing Gnome it is?

                    BTW give Fedora 13 a spin; had no choice but to install a superior DE like KDE in order for the apps to stop crashing (Gnome).

                    And seriously... A new desktop concept? I hope you do not mean multiple desktops, a compositing WM and app/file search? Mac OS X, Windows and KDE has had that for a _very_ long time.

                      You obviously haven't used a Gnome 3 preview yet... It is ok, a year from now it will be your main DE...

                      In the mean time, check if the default theme of KDE emulates the look and feel of current Windows well... They do try, after having a black Vista-like they switched to a Windows 7-like when it went out...

                      And seriously, who uses Fedora except some mazochists? I used to be one such poor fellow some years ago myself...

                      You seriously are not expecting Fedora to be stable in anything, do you?

                        Let's hope it won't revolutionise desktop experience the way it will become unusable. But who cares? :P

                          My Fedora 13 Gnome to KDE convert install is as stable as can be. I havent experience _any crash or lockup_ other then Totem, Gnash, Wine and Empathy, except for Rekonq that froze when excecution Facebook scripts, but continued happily after that. Never had a problem. I even installed and completed Tomb Raider: Anniversary (2007) retail DVD without a crack in Wine without a single crash, lockup or freeze with the default ATI FLOSS driver on my HD3300.

                          Also the current KDE doesn't resemble any Windows theme, including Windows 7, except for the 'hide the systray' icon. I feel Windows 7 basically copied the KDE 3.5 kicker. The 'start menu' with the search function was pretty much introduced before Vista and the same thing goes for the widgets.

                              You don't have to make gnome user wrong to make using KDE right. We're not going to come to your house and force you to install gnome and delete KDE. Everyone can install them all and decide what they like.
