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.

Looks like these people have never heard of the word "ecstatic" & "professionalism" just like the rest of GNOME & KDE.

Example One: http://digitizor.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/gnome3_5.png <- Look at how close the text label to the buttons is + pay attention on its X an Y coordinates. It is a joke and *no* do *not* tell me it is "alpha beta blah blah whatever" because based on my observations in the past, I know *nothing* will change for the final release.

Example: 2 http://digitizor.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/gnome3_1.png <- Again text is not on the middle, not positioned properly + it is too large and I know when you try to make it smaller it will look awful because as usual fonts suck in X when you have them in size 8, they are all squashed overlapping each other.

The entire GUI is extra large and non-sleek. Too much wasted spaced between Item 1 and Item 2....Everything just looks out of proportion + dark background does not make it look good.

And please don't even get me started on KDE...
