Happy Days!

GNOME 2.10 was released today. Yay us!

I know I push Ubuntu a lot (sorry
Phil,
but that gentoo fiasco
today was insane), but if push came to shove I’d be just as happy with
someone running vanilla
Debian,
NLD, or
Fedora. The GNOME desktop is
the real beauty of these systems, mainly due to its strong focus on
usability. Accessability, internationalization, and of course the
community are also aspects of GNOME that matter, to me at least.

If you haven’t used GNOME, or haven’t used it recently, you really
should give it a go. There’s a LiveCD
available
via bittorrent, for
anyone who doesn’t have a *nix install, or who doesn’t want to put
stuff on their hard drive.

I think it would be cool to have some of the usability people in
CS get involved, or even just
provide some feedback (I’d be willing to listen).
