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.

Windows 3.11 --> Windows 95: drastically different UI.

Windows NT 3.x --> Windows NT 4.0: drastically different UI.

Windows 2K/9x --> Windows XP: drastically different UI.

Windows XP --> Windows 7: drastically different UI.

Same for their Office suites (Office 2.0 -> 6.0 -> 95 -> 2003 -> 2007).

Yeah, it's great that Microsoft doesn't foist radically different UIs onto it's users :roll-eyes: Especially considering how little benefit there actually is to the new interface(s) compared to the old.
