"represents as close to a consensus in the community"
eh? What exactly do you mean ... if gnome would provide such a huge consensus then
it wouldnt irritate and alienate so many people right? Unless you claim all criticism comes from
outside, which I neither believe, nor think would be a good way (because people who ALWAYS
think they make the right decision WITHOUT taking input from the "outside" world,
will eventually fall over the cliff one day)

But anyway, the community is very heterogenous. I for example am not so much interested
about the Gnome as I felt more at home with the KDE community. I just cant help myself to
smile whenever Gnome defends decisions based on economic and tactical advantages
such as embracing Mono, while also bitching at Trolltech for SO LONG ... =)
