More about Gnome 2.6

Finally, I have installed the Gnome 2.6 Experimental Debian package in some testing machines. They are not yet on Sid or event Experimental while some are still stuck in Incoming. But I found that the Debian Gnome team build a repository for those packages when I read Jordi Mallach’s blog. If you got a spare space and would like to try them, put the following line in you /etc/apt/source.list:

deb sid main non-free contrib
deb experimental main non-free contrib
deb experimental main

Then use your favorite APT client to upgrade to Gnome 2.6.

If you use Slackware, Dropline Gnome 2.6 is available now.

Of course, don’t miss some another Gnome 2.6 review from OSNews and The state and future of Gnome 2.6.

I can’t describe how Gnome delight me in these several releases. I heard many KDE advocators stated that many new features of Gnome had already existed in KDE long time ago. But sorry. KDE is never my cup of tea! And undoubtfully, the future of open source desktop is belong to Gnome. ;P

    Okay, KDE have these feature for long long time since KDE2. But there are no more. Only now bundle top up function on later version. They never solve the foundation problem gifted by QT. We can expect a tomorrow GNOME. But never to KDE-_-ahman
