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 don't understand your argument about multitasking then. Are you claiming that GNOME 3 does not support multitasking?

With regards to application switching, you're overreacting. Switching between applications is as easy as pressing alt+Tab. Anybody who finds that difficult to do shouldn't be using a computer.

If you want an overview of all running applications pressing the window key is all it takes. You can then visually select whichever application you want.

Once you've experienced the coolness of dynamic workspaces in GNOME Shell you won't miss or care for clicking on taskbars or multitasking or whatever. I know. I also thought it was the end of the world until I tried out. Now I don't care for bars, panels and docks. I even want them to get rid of that top panel.
