"What's all this talk about Helix, Helixcode, Helix GNOME,
the Helix Desktop, or whatever they call it, all about? What is it,
and, most important, can it be useful to me and you? And, if we
decide we want to try it out, how shall we do it?"
"Relax! After reading this article and the following one, you
will feel much more enlightened on this topic, and hopefully even
have found yourself a new favorite desktop! I think they call it
the Helix Desktop, or was it GNOME, or Helixcode, or... Nah! Go on
and read the rest of the article instead!"
"To begin with, let's straighten out some terms. "GNOME" stands
for GNU Network Object Model Environment. It is a standard for how
a graphical application should look and act and what
libraries/toolkits it should be built with. There are hundreds of
so-called "GNOME applications" that follow this standard. And by
doing that, they are members of the GNOME application family."
