Cleaned my appartment today in a big way, funny how nice it
to be in an appartment that is clean and tidy, to bad it
not stay this way for long :)

I also got an Enlightenment article
edited and sent of
today, will probably go up on Linuxpower

Techrepublic did a review of the Helix GNOME install. I
always thought that
GNOME would dominate the Linux desktop
as a result of being
technically superior, but after seeing
the response to the Helix
installer I have come to the
conclusion that the ease of use and
install that Helix
provides will probably be a bigger success
factor for GNOME
that the technical qualities.

Of course ease of install isn’t
worth much if what you
install is crap so the qualities of GNOME is
unimportant, but I am quite sure that the mass adoption and
migration to GNOME
we see these days, wouldn’t have come
about without the Helix

Speaking of success, I think the recent annoucement by Troll
Tech to alter their
QPL license, is a direct response to the
tremendous response of
GNOME 1.2, just like the QPL was a
direct response to the
threat posed by Harmony.
This time it will get them nowhere however,
actually wonder
how long it will take before Troll Tech gets desperate
to LGPL Qt, or maybe they decide that the desktop war
is a lost
cause and that they will never own the Linux
desktop anyway.
