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.

Most people are capable of multitasking. They're just bad at it.

OK, but who cares? Smoking is bad, but people still smoke, drinking is bad, but people still get drunk. Loud noise is bad, but people still "rock-and-roll". Speeding is bad, people still speed. Why? because it makes people FEEL better. The same applies here. We are not talking about rocket science here, it is more about feeling. All we want is just comfort, and we do feel more comfortable when we do multitasking. That is it.

I don't really understand these designers. I think they should adopt a "no-policy, only mechanism" approach. They should only offer tools which are "primitive" enough so that users can use them to implement their own work flow. They are not supposed to enforce their policy.
