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 believe that's exactly the point of this interface design. Focus on a single task or few tasks. Minimize clutter and visual distraction.


My 6 virtual desktops with a viewport of 2560x1024 allows me to minimize clutter, avoid distraction, and jump to any running application with no more than two clicks on the taskbar.

And then for comic relief, I can move the mouse to one corner, and show all my active windows on my current screen.

I want a desktop that works for me... not a desktop that I have to learn to work for.
