Gnome Yesterday it was announced that GNOME 3.0 is delayed till next year. The extra time has given the Shell Developers some more time to play around with new concepts and they have come up a new mockup. Here are the new mockups.

After everyone having a jolly good laugh at the disaster of KDE 4.0 (and it was terrible), Gnome is now well on track to do the same thing, but worse. KDE just had instability and missing features to contend with, but Gnome will also have a fundamentally new design, and after 20 years of tweaking small variations of the normal desktop concept with task bar will be incredibly hard to get right, or even close to usable.

The desktop environment has stagnated and that's a good thing. It works for most people, and Gnome messing with it at this point is far more likely to make it worse than better.
