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.

There was a lot of complaint about KDE 4, and similarly for Gnome 3. Now, I'm mostly experienced with KDE 3 (it's what they have on the computers at Uni), and have never thought much of Gnome (I just didn't like the way it did things), but both Gnome 3 and KDE 4 seems like great innovations to me.
Having had a look at those videos about Gnome 3 makes me think I should really give it a go. I think they've done some quite clever UI things. Then again, I'm a big fan of projects that try and come up with new UI ideas.
