I can't say I've had big problems with Gnome.  I've had netscape-related
troubles, and twice my whole system went down in a blaze of Gnome-related
glory, but I've been using GNome for most of a year, and I have the most
recent Gnome packages.    Well, there might be new ones out, but I can't
download them.  It's too slow and painful.  (Downloading megabyte files
over a 28K dialup... ow.)
I certainly can't say Gnome changed my permissions without me.
(Of course, Rik might be speaking as a KDE writer there... or using humor.
In which case, don't mind me.)


Curiosity kills people.  Even dead ones.
