unfair, just a little unfair ...

ok, this thread doesn't need another opinion, but nobody touched
this issue.

Miguel and his crew are /struggling/ their heads to make Gnome 
ligthweigth, very ligthweigth, ligthweigth as possible, they 
even wrote an entire ORB because of this goal.

And then come up raster (with a good piece of work, nobody
can't deny this) and say: 'hey, all you losers, want to use
Gnome ?, buy a new computer !'

it _seems_ a little unfair ...

but I'm sure that Miguel and raster will find a good solution.
