company I think that the biggest hurdle GNOME has is the poor state of developer documentation creates a high level of entry. There is not one place that I can go to find current documentation.

By the way, I am not trolling. This has been confirmed - for me at least - when I did the KDE KDevelop tutorial this morning. The KDE docs are fantastic - second only to the PHP docs. I avoided KDE for years, not liking Qt's pseudo C++, but it is too well written and well-integrated to pass up.

Yea, I know that I am not a big-time developer around here. I have posted patches here and there where I have found problems. I still like Free Software development and I really wish that GNOME would stop worrying about C#/Java and just write good documentation. The GNOME language bindings are great, but there is no consistant way to develop Python/C/C++/Perl GNOME programs. Anjuta is very cool, but every time I developed applications with Anjuta/libGlade I would find out that Glade was using deprecated widgets.

Please, someone correct me. I would like to know that I am wrong.
