Just to clarify, I was talking about the desktop (panel, etc.) not

A delay of GTK 2's magnitude has to come from dozens of sources; all
the major pieces took too long (TreeView, TextView, GObject, even
accessibility, etc.), there were too many smaller features added, and
key personnel got yanked onto other tasks on various unplanned
occasions. Some of the delays were deliberate, some were not. Each
individual delay cause was a drop in the overall bucket. ;-)

300,000 lines of productized code were written - that's just a
mind-blowing quantity of code, how any of us thought it'd happen on
the original schedule is an interesting question.

Owen is going to postmortem the whole thing at GUADEC, personally I'm
curious to hear what he has to say:
