Want to see what the new GNOME 2.18 will be like and can’t wait for the release date? Don’t feel like rolling up your sleeves and compiling it from source? Have no fear!!!
Ken Vandine has packaged GNOME 2.17.92 as a VMware image, which can be downloaded here. Experience GNOME (in english only for now) with all of its components packed into a mere 362 MB, including VMware Tools!!! All of this goodness thanks to the powers of Conary!
Next, more localized and Live CDs… ;)
