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.

Despite what the studies might say, not *everyone* is utterly incapable of multitasking. Some people are actually more productive with it. Are those people supposed to stoop down to the majority's level? If so, why even buy computers with gigabytes of RAM? And tabbed browsing? Get rid of that too--can't have too many Web pages on your mind, now. Might as well go back to 512MB-1GB, tops, if we're going to throw effective multi-tasking out the window. It's a good thing GNOME has tons of competition.

I hate to break the news to you bud, but no matter how much you might think you excel at multi-tasking, it's utterly impossible for a human being to multi-task. Period. Sorry. While you might be able to efficiently switch between tasks, you're incapable of true multi-tasking, as is everyone. I only wish I could convince others, like the ones hurtling down the expressway at 80 mph while yapping on a smartphone, of this fact.
