[Mono-list] Don't forget the desktop
Wed, 11 Jul 2001 00:03:08 +0000
OK, although nobody answered my question about the future of Bonobo, I
kept reading the list and I have an idea now. It seems good stuff
indeed! I'm just afraid that this project will not leave enough
resources for the desktop.
I mentioned that I use Gnome from the very beginnings, and been
following its development and see it mature, and it is in a good status
right now, but it still needs improvement. It isn't usable as Kde 2.x is
(I use Gnome 1.4x from debian unstable, maybe redhat's another story),
and lacks documentation (I'm starting to program in gnome with C++ and
it is really hard to find some information about it, and the API isn't
so well documented as the plain C libraries). Esound doesn't work for
me, but artsd does, and konqueror is very well integrated with
everything. I'm not saying that gnome is worst than Kde, but it needs
more work on it.
Before anyone mentions it, yes, in the documentation side, being a
beginner I think I can help in this field and I'll do it if time permits
me. Also I'd love to be more experienced to help in the areas I think
I just wanted to share my opinion, I'll continue using Gnome in the
future and keep learning to develop on it. Ximian has all my trust, I
know that you are doing what is best. Just dont forget the desktop, all
lusers like me will be grateful.
