And more and more people are agreeing.  Even though I may grouse about 
software religion and how dumb it is to (e.g.) omit K3B, these guys are
doing something worthwhile.  My friend Martin Pool explained the basics,
the other day, on the linux-elitists mailing list:

   GNOME (and Ubuntu) allow Linux users who might otherwise switch to Mac
   OS to stay on Linux.  Opinions may vary on whether that's a good
   thing.  The general direction seems similar, though GNOME allows more
   options: if you want to run wmi then you can.
