Parent article: Re: GNOME now
I've been watching how my kids (5, 7 and 9) use our computers. They prefer GNOME 2 and have tweaked everything you could imagine. To them it's magic, it gives them power, a sense of accomplishment, and OWNERSHIP. They share tweaks with each other and help each other out.
No one can tell me options and tweaks are bad or hard. The kids figured it out themselves, even the 5 year old. They now argue over who gets the fedora 14 machine, the loser get fedora 17 and GNOME 3.
