Re: Gnome to be removed from debian?

hmm...I have had more problems with other packages in my stint with Debian.  Gnome has
been running fine and stable for the past month for me.  Every once in a while
I'll have some conflictions...but as with all development stuff..you give
it a little bit of time and it all works out.

If you don't like gnome...don't use it...don't ruin it for those who do like
