Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

I have to give the Gnome team some credit here. They actually learned from their own 2.0 release and KDE 4.0 in that they've been replacing key components in Gnome 2.x with the new 3.0 libraries for quite some time now.

Now the question is whether distros will also have learned and show restraint in running out to make it the default desktop till it's fully ready
