What´s the technology way we want do for the 11.4 successor?


* KDE 4.x and GNOME 2.x _and_ GNOME 3.x

I don't think the GNOME team has planned to have both GNOME versions.
If that's something people want to see happen, please show up at the
GNOME team meetings or on opensuse-gnome :-)

I know the 'manpower' point of view, and against that there are no
arguments. On the other side, considering that many people are
throwing knifes at the alternative panels of G3 and stuff...

gnome-panel is still available in GNOME 3 :-) So we can still build a
GNOME 2-like interface with GNOME 3 if we want. Some things will be
different, but I'm pretty sure those wouldn't be that much of a big deal
to most people.


Who cares about gnome anyway ;-)

My experiences from KDE awere that it's good to keep support for the old
stable tree in parallel for at least one version. The K Desktop (a really
great product broken by an over-ambitious major release) is now in its 4.6 and
it's slowly coming back to a stage where I would recommend it to grandparents
and other casual users. This Gnome3 thing seems to be a big step for the
little gnomies, so I think it's wise to let them choose if they want to make
this step this time or next time.

Are we sure we want this discussion on two lists?
