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 am writing from the GNOME 3 Fedora preview live CD and so far i'm loving it. I know that the change from the older 2.x release is very big but even after several minutes of use i grew accustomed to it and i like how it works. The systems is snappy and fast (even though i use it on a live cd) and the whole design concept works well in my opinion. The biggest drawback of the new desktop is that you need some time to get used to it. But after that it works quite well. What is even more impressive is that this is a x.0 release. Compared to what i saw in KDE 4.0 and to what i've read about GNOME 2.0 (back when it was released i wasn't using linux so i don't have a first hand experience of it) it is quite stable. I can only imagine what it will be like after several more releases.

Congratulations to the GNOME developer's team for their great release!
