| GNOME 2.20.2 will really improve the way your Linux distribution works, 
| because it is much more stable and faster than 2.20.1. You should update as 
| soon as possible, if you want to take advantage of the improvements (there 
| are a lot more than I noted here)!

12 Tips for GNOME Users

,----[ Quote ]
| As a desktop, GNOME is standard enough that most computer users can feel 
| comfortable within ten minutes of first using it. Yet what always puzzles me 
| is how often people fail to explore it beyond the basics. Possibly, they're 
| conditioned by Windows, which allows relatively limited customization. But, 
| whatever the reason, too often they stoically endure what they could fix if 
| only they could find their way around.

10 Ideas to Improve GNOME

,----[ Quote ]
| We love GNOME. Sometime around 2.6 it started becoming really, really damned 
| good, and a lot faster and more responsive. All kinds of nice things like 
| Network Manager, the Nautilus CD burner and the SFTP support popped up. It 
| helps that most major Linux apps like like Firefox, Evolution, GAIM, and 
| OpenOffice use the same toolkit and themes too. Obviously we’re not alone  
| either: Ubuntu, RHEL and SuSE all use GNOME by default.    
| Here’s a bunch of ideas to improve it.
