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.

XFCE4 is now pretty high on my list, almost at the top.

I just did a little experiment and an XFCE4 install can look mostly like GNOME in about 20 minutes of tweaking.

I might go back to Debian on the desktop, in that case with XFCE4 if I don't like what GNOME or Ubuntu come up with.

And Thunar is much faster than Nautilus anyway. :-)
