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 thought I'd hate it at first. But I've used it for the past 2 months exclusively and I'm now very impressed. The polish, smoothness and the focus on providing a non-distracting environment is second to none. What's more, we can't say the Linux Desktop doesn't innovate anymore. GNOME Shell is unlike anything out there.

Kudos to the devs for this bold new direction I initially mocked in secret.
