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.

So window management has become modal, where you flip a toggle and suddenly everything behaves completely differently until you flip the switch again?

It is a great example of what every book and paper on usability in the last 30 years says is a bad idea. I can't believe gnome would go this direction.
