Gnome Only a few days ago, we ran an article on the future of KDE and GNOME, and which of the two had the brighter future based on their developmental processes. Barely has that discussion ended, or the GNOME engineering team comes with a pretty daunting plan to introduce a fairly massive reworking of the GNOME interface for GNOME 3.0 (2.30). Read on for the details.

Please don't!

This is all getting so frustrating for me. I'm a Windows refugee and lazy OSX user. But the GDI font rendering / anti-aliasing of OSX drives me nuts after a few ours in front of the screen. So I've recently tested a few Linux and BSD distros and found a GNOME based Linux to be the most easiest to adapt to. GNOME is simple and clean. And with a "good" theme engine it looks as nice as OSX... ;-)

Having no super duper futuristic stylish desktop concept is not bad. Some people chose GNOME exactly for its simplicity and because it's easy to customize.
