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.

the state of gnome

I have been using gnome-shell as my default window manager since 2.28 was released.

There are things that are really lacking in places like the system menu not being in the activities list and i miss my top panel of icons.

As a day to day window manager i've decided to leave compiz/metacity behind. Mutter is smooth and fast and the learning curve for gnome-shell has been fairly short.

Compiz has never been that great a WM for me with all the bugs and issues it causes (not being able to click flash anyone?) and the biggest problem i've had with gnome-shell is a missing applet every now and again.

Right now i feel that Gnome 3 will be very solid and for now i'm happy to test out what's coming in Gnome3 on Gnome2
