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.

You do remember KDE4 being released while they tried to tell everyone it was beta? Nobody cares if it's not ready yet, it was big new and shiny.

Something happened to me as a Linux user when i switched completely. When software gets a new release i want it. I'll sit on my PC all night if it doesn't work because for some reason I have to have it.

That's why delay is good, keep it away from the ravenous compilers who also complain the most when something isn't that great.
