This comes as a nice complement to Ed’s thoughts on the matter. It is always nice to see these points debated, because I feel that GNOME sorely needs a little re-orientation. (Flash: I saw a good writeup by Ed on OfB.biz… and the whole thing got Slashdotted for good measure!)
Not the one to stay still, I’ve written up my own opinion on the matter. Expect it to appear in OfB.biz any time now.
