| open-source desktop environment compared to its KDE 3.5.x code-base.
| Meanwhile, the GNOME community has been living in a 2.0 cycle for quite some
| time with no signs of a major overhaul, but their six-month release cycles

| for GNOME 3.0 just put this release out when there is significant API/ABI
| breakage to GNOME 2.0 / GTK+ or a major rewrite. Well, in addition to
| announcing Stormy Peters joining GNOME, at GUADEC 2008 they have just
