"Gnome in my opinion (which matters very little) has not changed much since 2000/2001!?"

GNOME has regular releases at each 6 months and it damn well has changed...

Just see for yourself a few of the releases:

BTW, 1.4 was released in 2001... I guess they wouldn't do releases just for the sake of it.
