Gnome The Gnome Project released version 2.12 yesterday. We had a quick look at it by using the latest Gnome Live CD (1.12-pre) and Foresight 0.9.0 (2.12 final) and here are our thoughts over 2.12 and Gnome's status in general.

Performance:
Gnome feels much faster with video hardware that supports acceleration of the Render extension, it also is noticably faster when using a compositing manager, of course this results in more instability of X.

Look:
Try adjusting your DPI setting to be true to your monitor/resolution, and after that adjust your font sizes. (I prefer 11pt fonts). Also there are themes that make widgets smaller as this is typically adjustable in the engine.

Feel:
I've not experienced many weird behaviours, perhaps you could let us know what they are? A bug is a bug, and should get reported.
