Gnome As most of you will know, the GNOME team is hard at work on GNOME 3.0, the first major overhaul of the platform since 2002. The release of GNOME 3.0 was originally planned for March 2010, but it has now been pushed back for six months to September 2010.

Believe or not, this strategy worked quite well! (for KDE at least)

The rushed release of KDE4.0 attracted quite a number of developers

Maybe from the developer point of view it was a success. But for the point of view of a humble user, it was a complete disaster.

In my case, I've been using KDE since KDE 2. I stoped using KDE six months ago when I started to work with KDE4. Suddenly Xfce or even Gnome were a better choice for me. I don't think that I'll be a KDE user again in the next years.

Anyway I wish that the Gnome 3 release is a huge success.
