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.

Let me say this first, this comment contains only my thought/impression. Not to start flame war or anything.

Not a single person spotted so here it goes. As soon as I saw the UI on their website, I thought it somewhat very similar to Unity by Ubuntu team. (Given that this aims for similar set of devices than it is understandable since there should be boundary/limitation in human imagination)

And while watching the video on the website, I thought oh this and that features are already in KDE4 and Mac OS X.. I neither know nor want to track the history of each feature anyway so I am just saying there are similar/same features already found in other DE/OS.

My final thought was that by just looking at the UI and some features shown in the video, GNOME3 looks like mimic of KDE4, Mac OS X and Unity ( in alphabetical order (: ) *to me*,

Though I guess there should be differences beyond them, until I try it out I cannot tell.

Anyway, kudos to GNOME dev team.
