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.

Aside the fact that the "Activities" menu is a blatant borrow of Microsoft's post-Vista Start Menu, it appears to be an inferior version of it as well.

But the biggest thing bugging me about it is that I had to actually read the description in order to figure out what's going on in the screenshots. It could be the all-black theme making this harder, but a program launcher should be intuitive and quickly grasped.

Nothing I've seen so far screams "impressive" to me, and that's a bit worrying for what's supposed to be the next big version.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a current Ubuntu user and don't have much complaints about GNOME, I'm just having trouble seeing the new direction.
