" Haa, Sun made a fairly big commitment toward usability and accessibility

" Which the new tablet/smartphone (and javascript) metaphor of GNOME 3 the

" Which means that GNOME 3 accessibility isnt up to what it should be.

but gnome 2 hasn't just quietly gone away.  linux folks dissatisfied
with g3 formed a group to continue g2 development, which led to spinoff
mate' and i think also cinnamon.  that suggests gnome 2 is still in
fertile ground.
