http://ostatic.com/blog/oh-no-fuduntu-calls-it-quitsI can't believe my eyes. Just as Fuduntu was getting rave reviews and moving up the charts, just a week after announcing their latest release the Fuduntu project "voted to end-of-life Fuduntu Linux." It seems developmental issues are forcing this decision, and signals a time when ultimately all GNOME 2 users will end up having to move on.
Lee Ward stated the reason for their decision was "support for GTK2 has decreased dramatically. With this, apps using GTK2 have been moved to GTK3 and old versions are no longer being maintained for either bugs or security flaws."
So Gnome 2 is now finally dead and laid to rest it seems.
And in other news, KDE 3.5 still churns on... not that I know of anyone who is using it.
