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.

But it wasn't ready for users like me. And I'm a regular user, nothing extraordinary. I don't see the need to exaggerate in a Free software press release.

Why not? Gnome has tended to do it for years. Whatever did happen to 10x10 I wonder? Where is the code for that?

So you decided to ditch what worked for you in the name of a press release, jumped into bed with a distribution that doesn't test its releases other than to do some vague version bumping (which is all of them) and you're bitching to the high heavens about it?

I just hope that the Gnome developer team has learnt one lesson or two and they don't commit the same mistakes.

Were you not around for Gnome 2.0's launch?

The problem is if they don't learn from KDE and have the courage to make the jump at some point as they did, and actually come up with a GTK 3 that would make Gnome 3 actually worth something, then Gnome 3 will merely be an inadequate version bump to try and give the impression that they're not seriously falling behind.
