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.

First, let me just say that I love KDE right now. I used Gnome until KDE 4.3, but now KDE is just awesome.

KDE 4.0 didn't fail, and it was actually very successful. It did exactly what the release announcement said it would do, no more and no less.

True. When I said it failed, I meant that it wasn't really useful for normal people to use, and thus, it was a failure to them. I understand that it was necessary for the progress of KDE, and I don't think that KDE did anything wrong with the release (although labeling it as "alpha" might have helped a bit).

The people at fault were the ones who expected it to be perfectly ready and usable (which included me at the time, after trying KDE 4.0, I expected to be sticking with Gnome for a long time, and now, I would hate to ever go back to Gnome).
