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.

You have a very incorrect definition of the word radical.
And you haven't demonstrated that my usage was incorrect; you've merely defined radical, good for you.

or of the massive fundamental changes being attempted with Gnome Shell
Right. They're introducing hardware accelerated compositing... or was that Vista. They've bumped the toolkit up a notch... oh, wait, Vista. They've shaken up the main menu and added search... like Vista did. They've fucked with the directory hierarchy in an effort to bring more robust database-like functionality to the desktop, like Vista (and taken further with 7). They've made invasive changes to the way applications look and behave, Vista. They've made major changes to the configuration dialogues, like Vista. They only thing they've done which is particularly unique was shake up users' work flows but then Win 7 was hot on Vista's heels to do that, too.

...approach the changes in OS X...or Unity
You're taking the piss, right?
