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.

Of course not!

As a power users, I don't use a computer like a new comer. I use advanced features such as KPart/KIO and custom action menu scripts, tiling windows managing, d-bus script to connect my desktop to my apps, windows placement rules, chopped down UI to have more working space (i use only keyboard shortcut) and many other aspects. Give this to a non-technical person and he/she will be unable to do something with it. Give me a UI with 7 toolbar on the top, a status bar and pane on each side (like MS Visual Studio) and I will cry.

KDE allow me to tweak apps for my taste, and my tastes are unique. One UI can't fit all cases, you have to add some configurability to it.
