Wanda the GNOME Fish

This page is for all those out there who adore Wanda the GNOME fish.
(Actually I've called mine Karen, but that's besides the point)

I hope that the GNOME foundation will ontinue to include this lovable fish in
all their future distributions. I mean, the surrealist melting clocks, weather forecaster

and game of life applets are all very fine an
d have their own place, but Wanda is another
thing altogether :- a shining star among humble applets.

To the unenlightened, Wanda the GNOME fish is a small applet
that sits in your desktop panel. It doesn't need watering or feeding,

and unlike other fishes, it responds to a click of a mouse button

by dispensing little gems of pure wit and perspicacity.

Oh well, yes -- quite often, Wanda is a fish that plagiarises,

but personally, I can't resist a fish that does that with quite

so much panache.

Get your very own Wanda the GNOME fish here. Use GNOME!

This is what the old Wanda used to look like. But she's had a very nice make-over since!

If you're one of the people who worked on making (or improving) this lovely little applet, do let me know.
