I can’t believe it’s been five years since I wrote my “10 years of GNOME” post, but it seems to be true! Actually, the anniversary was yesterday already, but I didn’t get the chance to write about it then. So, I’m doing that now.
I’m not going to spend too much of your time reminiscing the past. I’ll leave it to Havoc’s excellent comment on LWN’s 15th anniversary article, firstly because he actually knows what he’s talking about, and secondly because he does it so eloquently. From GNOME 1 through GNOME 2 to GNOME 3, we’ve come a long way in usability, elegance, and community building.
May there be many more years of success for my favorite free desktop!
