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.

Because, as everyone knows, there's only one way to effectively use a computer. There's also only one kind of user, with a fixed set of needs that never changes.

Sane defaults are great, but forcing everyone to use the computer in a single way is... shortsighted.
