gnome is too big and heavy on dependencies , it's absurde complexity is driven by bonobo and idl/xml stuff
throwed together to make it more like com api from the windows world
Gnome should get rid of these , all the xml crap that slows the desktop
- GConf – for storing application settings. (keep the settings in ini or json files)
- Bonobo – a compound document technology.
- LibXML – an XML library.
- ORBit – a CORBA ORB for software componentry.
also allow java script and other languages to be included in the main desktop
