GNOME 2.4 Diaries

Thanks to the beauties of Garnome and a free Labor Day morning, I’ve finally got myself switched over to GNOME 2.4 as my regular day-to-day desktop rather than just a sand box to play in. (Well, technically it’s still sandboxed so I can switch back to regular Ximian, but it looks like the last annoyances are worked out so I won’t need to.)

Watching the build, as make traffic flew by on the terminal screen all morning, I was struck by the absolutely remarkable volume of human effort involved in this project. All for free, shared with whoever wants it. Humbling.
