Gnome GNOME 3, the much talked about next generation GNOME introduces a radical shift from the interface found in GNOME 2.x. Digitizor has a quick visual tour of GNOME 3 in Ubuntu 9.10.

For the life of me I can neither understand the logic nor the usability of this new paradigm!

Maybe it can work for netbooks but for bigger screens? No t really. I mean I have to turn my screen into smaller squares each time I fire an Application? And the menu itself is so unintuitive!

Besides I fail to understand the need to include a lot of bling bling in the basic configuration of the desktop. Rather having a robust, USABLE and fast environment in the basic configuration while having the additional glitter being optional sounds much better.

The gnome developers seem to forget one thing, the quintessence for a desktop environment is for it to be transparent to the users rather than be a thick layer of goo, obstructing the user in his/her activities. As for me, if gnome ends up being this, I might seriously consider moving to xfce.
