Gnome GNOME hacker Seth Nickell has written a lengthy PDF and accompanying blog post with a number of very interesting ideas for GNOME 3.0. I pondered putting this up on the front page, but since that usually only attracts the "It's not what I'm used to so it sucks"-crowd, I decided to put it up here. Be sure to read the blog post, the PDF, and the comments on the blog post to get the entire picture.

This guy have some nice ideas. What I liked is that he is focused on the goals of the user, not on creating stuff for the sake of creating stuff like people on kde4 and gnome-shell...

By the way, there's a whole methodology of creating products focusing on goals. It's called Goal Oriented Design, and I think OSS people should start using immediately if they want to stay competitive..
