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.

Gnome 3.0 is smooth, stable, nice looking and indeed very functional.

Yes, it looks nice, but it is absolutely not functional. It misses a lot of functionality I'm using daily with Gnome 2. There is no easy and fast way to see what apps are running. Access to menu is slow and absolutely inconvenient - move mouse to corner, then select applications, then try to find your application among all the icons - it is very confusing even computer-literate users.

Will your favorite feature be implemented? Perhaps! Start by letting them know what you think and come up with constructive ideas :-)

I have very constuctive idea: look at the long list of features removed and implement them all. Here are just few of them, for start:
1. Make panel configurable and movable
2. Bring back all those gnome applets
3. Make things confirurable.
4. Bring back launchers
5. Make normal fallback mode, which really has features of Gnome2, not the same useless interface, but also ugly.
