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.

Looks like a parody of the desktop

If I saw the youtube preview without knowing I honestly would have thought it was a parody of the desktop.

I think Linux distros should go for speed and build around OpenBox. Going after Windows or OS X users is a waste of time. The Linux desktop is too far behind in usability.

But I would actually rather leave a new user with OpenBox than Gnome 3. G3 is a case of engineers designing a desktop without any feedback from average users. The KDE team should send Gnome a cake to thank them for driving users away.
