Gnome "The release of GNOME 3.0. the popular desktop's first major release in eight years, promises to be the major free software event in autumn 2010. Where is GNOME now? What can we expect of GNOME 3.0? Of GNOME 3 as a series of releases?"

If you look at the movie on the net someplace - its featured on LXer, how multiple desktops are supposed to work in future -- and ask yourself how on earth you're going to explain to ordinary people how to use this thing, its hopeless. Or indeed, how on earth I am going to use this thing myself?

I just tried Gnome-Shell out and well... It really is dead-simple to instantly grasp the idea and actually using those workspaces is so simple you really couldn't make it much easier. As such, I'd say they did reach their goal: make it easy to use workspaces without forcing you to use them.
