[OpenIndiana-discuss] Gnome and the future

from what I remember of the conversations of the time, we cannot move
to Gnome 3 because of certain Linux dependencies ...

Gnome 2 is no longer changing, and no longer being patched ...

We don't have time or resources to support a Gnome 2 desktop system
development fork (at least I don't and I don't believe OI devs do
either) and in fact most Illumos OS's don't include a graphical
environment at all.

Linux Mint (I believe) are actually looking to go to Gnome 3, but with
a customised theme, they cannot afford to ignore GTK3, and sticking
with GTK2 means that new projects will not work for them.

Linux Mint's Gnome theme does not look like Gnome 2 ...

Of course some (or even all) of my ramblings could be wrong.
