Well, the good news is that Novell has handed over 40 of their excellent coders in Bangalore, India to the Ximian group. The group's initial primary target is going to be whittling down the bugs in GNOME. The team they've assembled has already started getting patches accepted by GNOME maintainers, so things are really looking up - GNOME 2.6 should be the best release yet, in terms of both features and buglessness!
