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.

On the other hand, GNOME tries REALLY hard to enforce its developers' vision on to your usage pattern

I'd say that is a point of view: atleast I find my GNOME desktop customizable enough and not forcing me to do things in some specific way. It would be forcing if you weren't allowed to change anything, but you are and as such the point is moot.

Of course KDE4 is more customizable than GNOME, but it doesn't mean GNOME is forcing things on you either: if not having every possible imaginable option available means you are being forced to work one way or another then KDE4 would be forcing too; it just doesn't have every possible imaginable option either.

Besides, these are all just semantics; GNOME3 hasn't been released even as an RC and no one can yet say whether it'll be any good or not.
