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 just want to correct one point: KWin was not in an unstable change in 4.0 or needed a release badly. It is true that OpenGL compositing support was new, but disabled by default. KWin did not start to enable compositing by default before 4.2.

So the KWin the user of 4.0 had was the same rock stable, feature rich window manager as used from 3.5.
