> ralf, are you talking about gnome3? gnome2 will not be disappearing from
the repos anytime soon, and gnome3 will surely be in the default ubuntu
repos as long as it is actively developed. the reason for the change is just
that. gnome2 is not being actively developed anymore, and we (the
ubuntustudio team) dont really have the kind of resources to take on
something like that. i think some of what led us to XFCE is that it is
gnome2-like (more so than gnome3 or unity). do you feel gnome3 is the best
choice for a DAW?
