But some people do deliberately "apt-cache search GNOME 2" to find new
GTK+2.0 based software that they want to try out. A lot of software
that was originally written for GNOME 1.x, but still have no GNOME 2
equivalent are more often than not no longer maintained by upstream,
and thus avoided by some. It's psychology, I'm afraid. Almost every
other GNOME 2 application is doing this as well.
