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.

Most of my problems with this desktop shell at the moment is their decision to combine their application menu with the virtual desktop and window manager. Now don't get me wrong I like their virtual desktop and window manager a lot, its a very attractive and intuitive design, I just don't see why it has to be activated every time I use the menu. That will be very distracting and while I can see why a couple people could desire such a combination, its unsuited for the default behavior. They are two separate functions and so should be separate by default. The menu is workable but also seems to have taken a step back, the separation into Application, places, system was great and should have been kept.

I expect that someone will come up with fixes for these things though, since these are mostly superficial things.
