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 want a desktop environment in a desktop computer, not a mobile computing environment.

I tried the last betas, and I found the same problem again, and again, and again, and again, and ...: no way of fast switching between windows, and total discontrol about what programs are running at the same time.

Sorry, Alt+Tab is not known by ALL users - and is slow too -... Changing windows by using "Activities" is VERY slow. It may be the new GNOME vision, but I warn that somebody should give the developers a set of new glasses :-D.

No fast access dock, no taskbar, sudden notifications without a full system tray - some people use the tray with a reason, like checking network activity and computer resources usage -. Very good for mobile computing, very bad for a modern multitasking desktop.

So much bad press and flamewars against KDE at the 4.0 launch, and now GNOME people is doing things worse than KDE people then.

Meanwhile, angry users at GNOME's door ... :-D
