Without the poster defining what he means by "making progress", this sounds
like purely random musings on your part.

GNOME 2.0 was a great release, and we've even improved on it by releasing
2.0.1 and 2.0.2 with plenty of bugfixes and performance enhancements. Is
responsible software engineering "making progress"?

Oh, please point me to the survey that defines the common Red Hat user as
such. I think Red Hat would have a better idea of who the common Red Hat
user is, and what they want.

GNOME 2 is a Free Software desktop, not a 'corporate desktop distribution'.
Perhaps you are confusing Red Hat and GNOME?

No, not in the slightest. Developers don't spend all day pissing up a rope
configuring their systems, they'd rather be writing code. It's a fairly
simple equation.
