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.

Get a grip of reality....

I think the developers of both GNOME and KDE should get a grip of reality. If they keep heading the current direction, Linux desktop will stay stagnant as it has been for the last 15 years. Between GNOME 1.x and KDE.1x and their latest counterparts, I see 0.1% improvement. Things always not behaving one would expect, broken apps, sluggish windows...even things as simple as copy/paste and drag&drop are misbehaving.

The Linux Desktop is a desktop created with parts of multiple desks sticky taped/glued together. That is all. A big pile of useless stuff. Each part is incompatible either with itself or with the part next to it.

For once, *stop* re-inventing the wheel because you always end up making it square and start fixing the basics.
