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.

Unfortunately, the reality is that humans aren't good at multitasking. Actually, we're terrible at it. Thus it's prudent to design interfaces and workflows with a single-tasking bent as opposed to multitasking one. This is something GNOME Shell actually got right from a cognitive design perspective!

There are many studies that show that we are terrible at multitasking. Google is your friend. Here's a link to one of them.
