GNOME do not pay, or ask, Ubuntu to use GNOME. The
relationship is the
other way around. What reason to use Firefox? The extensions are the
and most obvious reason.
Epiphany's extensions have come a long way; have you checked them out? I'm
not saying Epy is for everyone, but it makes much more sense to include it
by default and have Firefox in the Main repo.
And GNOME Office is missing a presentation program,
among other things.
love for them to get more attention but with that glaring hole people will
probably use and work on OpenOffice.org
I agree on this point. OpenOffice is still
much superior; GNOME's office
suite really needs some work. And it would be silly to not include OO.o by
default at this stage, since it's a much more hefty download than Firefox,
and many (possibly most) people will want it.
