Well, I'll speak as one of the quiet people on this list.  I think Gnome
is absolutely going in the right direction!  The direction that has been
decided on is great!  The direction isn't to try to satisfy the current
users and give them everything they want.  The direction is to get a
bigger picture, to design for who we want as users.  The current
direction of Gnome puts it into competition with XP and OS X, which is
great!  To go from hacker desktop to a usable your mom's desktop in such
short of a time is amazing.  Man, I wish Eazel came around at this point
instead of a couple of years ago...

The old crowd says "this isn't what I want, stupid Gnome" and leaves for
KDE or some other desktop.  That's fine.  But don't get mad at Gnome
because it's aiming at the normal user.  Think bigger...  expand your
vision...  Gnome to the world!
