Since version 2.0, Gnome has harvested both criticism and acclaim. Just two and a half years ago, nobody would have considered it possible for a graphical desktop with a six month release cycle to maintain the high quality standards that Gnome has maintained. Despite the integration of new functions, the basic libraries continue to be downwardly compatible, and this is something that has convinced major IT players such as Red Hat, Novell, or Sun to use Gnome as the basis for their product lines.
