Gnome During the currently ongoing GUADEC conference in Den Haag the GNOME release team announced that GNOME 3.0 would be delayed for another six months and is now scheduled for March 2011. "We could release in September and have something working that is okayish, but it's not up to the standards we have" release team member Vincent Untz explains the reasoning. There's coverage of this issue at derStandard.at and an official GNOME press release.

People are already calling it a disaster and they did the same with KDE4. In my view, GNOME Shell is very stable and if it does crash, it drops back to GNOME 2 gracefully.

Novell have implemented it very nicely into openSUSE 11.3 with it's own session. I'm currently working on a GNOME Shell Sonar theme (The default GTK theme in openSUSE), which is nice because it uses CCS3 and SVG elements.

I think GNOME Shell is rather innovative but it takes some getting used to because of the different workflow.
