I don't even remember noticing there were any GNOME 1 forks at the time. The GNOME 2 and GNOME 3 forks OTOH are very noticeable, and seem to have gotten a few users. E.g. Cinnamon certainly seems to get used.

I remember there was a fork with a raison d'ĂȘtre of swapping the order of dialog buttons (Ok/Cancel or Yes/No).

I remember a fork that was called GarNOME.

I don't remember if that was the same fork.

I remember GarNOME, and have used it. It wasn't a fork of GNOME, but a build tool that made it easy to build GNOME from scratch, and install it to and run from an arbitrary directory, so you didn't have to risk messing up your system install of GNOME.

Gah, I meant GONEME!

Which illustrates the point rather beautifully. (Remember the old forks? Turns out I don't!)
