Linux When GNOME did its version 3 and Ubuntu came up with Unity, the popularity of Linux Mint sky-rocketed, because they stuck with GNOME 2.32. The Mint team has been working on their next version for a while now, and today, they first unveiled what they're working on. There's good news - the team is working on making GNOME 3 likeable. Their question for this release: "How do we make people like Gnome 3? And what do we provide as an alternative to those who still do not want to change?"

they hate for a reason. If your computer was good and awesome, an update messed that up.. In windows lands they would even sue microsoft for ruining their "experience" (which has happened all over the world several times) Destroying lets say kde3 interface with the complete bullcrap that is plasma is just a piss in the face of the users, The apps are still good and QT is still awsome. A fork might not win out in the long run, but in this particular case i think it will. DeskMATE WILL be the gnome desktop in a year and gnome3 will be dead. The difference from Trinity vs KDE4 is alot alike but still not. Trinity does not benefit from qt4 and that is it's downfall. There is no such limitations in G* land and gnome3 will be dead in a year or two unless they adapt what the people want.
