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 are distributions supporting good old Gnome 2 for another 7 yrs plus from now. So why the hysteria to change or not to change the desktop? Dear, this is OSS. It developes with different premises than commercial software.
And if you think about it, isn't it great that Red Hat as the main contributor to Gnome didn't step in to stop this mess they call Gnome 3.0? Isn't it exciting to watch, what direction Gnome will take after this - and after that - and after that?
At least, this major release doesn't seem to struggle with stability and speed issues, so heads up.
