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.

So they aren't really forcing users, because they are using the users' own ideas. Anyways, choice isn't generally a good thing. It's only necessary when the developers can't make a good interface, so need the user to do the last leg of work to get the software working correctly. Every checkbox is a failure on the part of the developer.
