New GNOME 2.24 is an incremental improvement

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on September 29, 2008 09:05 PM
It's fairly exciting that XRandR is capable of adding secondary monitors.

I expect, unfortunately, that it relies on the ability of the underlying driver to support multiple monitors.

Alas, if we restrict ourselves to FOSS drivers, this excludes, well, ALL of the off-the-shelf dual-head video cards available from retail outlets (like NewEgg).

So, are the Gnome folks teasing us, or have they tacitly thrown in the towel with regard to that whole open-source-only philosophy that made them split from KDE? The middle ground will be that this is feature bloat which everyone must studiously refrain from using.
