This is probably the best Gnome release in years (maybe not, but you see the point ;) .

In my opinion, it has an excellent balance between stabilization and new features. Nothing like the last 2.16 which was full of bugs, like the infamous "nautilus high cpu", anoying "gnome-terminal crazy tabs", and stupid "where's the screensaver gnome-screensaver?"... among others!

I love Gnome, but one thing that hate is that sometimes their releases seam rushed to keep the deadline and only stabilize with the next release or with x.x.3 minor one. This wouldn't be a problem if distros only released the the x.x.3 or when it's ready, but distros always want to be the first delivering it!
