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.

When you are in the activities overview, just start typing the name of the application you want to launch. Typing will filter the available application icons to a manageable number and make it easier to launch the application. This is a not a smooth as it should and I'm surprised the devs didn't spend time ensuring this is less jerky than it currently is.

You should also add frequently launched application to the side dock to make launching easier.

You can also use <alt>F2 to launch applications if you don't want to switch to the activities overview mode. It's much faster. However, it doesn't have the autocompletion features that made the run dialog in GNOME3 so useful and powerful.

Your audio problems are most likely unrelated to GNOME Shell or GNOME. Your distribution probably failed to start the right audio services for GNOME.
