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.

Gnome is now well on track to do the same thing, but worse.

Nope, Gnome is actually doing pretty well. They haven't changed much of the underlying infrastructure of Gnome 2, just the user interface. KDE 4.0 failed because it was a complete rewrite with all new technology.

Gnome will also have a fundamentally new design

Gnome Shell is really the only major fundamental change in Gnome 3. And it's just a window manager. The apps are largely the same.

The desktop environment has stagnated and that's a good thing.

No, it's not. The desktop needs something new. KDE 4 is probably the most impressive desktop right now, and it's still just the basic taskbar, windows, widgets, etc. There is a lot out there that has not been explored.

I haven't really liked the Gnome Shell releases that I've tried, but I'll admit that I like the concept and it's nice to see something new for a change.
