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.

KDE is NOT stuck in the past like Gnome with the sorrow Gtk 2 toolkit


GTK2 may not be the most advanced toolkit but what exactly is so off putting about it? It has been improving with every release.

Still using libegg? Still using Bonobo? Still using CORBA?


Bonobo is CORBA. All of that crap has been in the process of being phased out for a while now anyway. It would be stupid to just pull the rug out from everything that depends on those things.

Still using that Windows registry ripoff called gconf?


What exactly does the registry have in common with gconf other than centralized settings and an editor that resembles regedit to a degree? It certainly doesn't suffer from any issues that the registry suffers from. If you think the two are even remotely similar other than the two things I mentioned then you have very little experience with one or both of them.

No native good mail client (come on, that garbage of outlook copy comes no close to KMail unless you only care about Exchange connectivity),


What? Evolution rocks. It used to be a buggy piece of shit but it's been very stable for at least a few releases now. I'm not sure what KMail could possibly have over Evolution.

best image viewer is mono based?


Eog is the GNOME image viewer, not F-Spot and it is very good at what it does.

Still relying in compiz for desktop effects?


Compiz isn't a part of GNOME. GNOME 3.0 is going to integrate some level of 3D effects but for those of us who like Compiz there is no harm in replacing Metacity with it so I'm not sure where your complaining comes from.

Any good music player that comes close to Amarok?


Personally I find Amarok's interface a disaster. Banshee does everything I need in a music player and more.
