Re: Ximian Gnome
I've just gone through a painful process of taking a potato+ximian box to (pure) woody and trying to
get rid of Ximian Gnome in the process. It was not simple and because of the way Ximian had numbered
some versions, even newer versions within woody wouldn't install without some forcing. I still have
some way to go.
I would recommend going with Woody's Gnome.
By the way, this is not Ximian-bashing. They have upped the ante considerably for the Linux desktop
with Evolution but maybe their Gnome project is superfluous now.
