Gnome

Major new features for this release include a significant update to the experience for finding and installing applications, as well as major facelifts for the Videos and gedit applications. Those who have high resolution displays will benefit from greater support, and users will experience better start up times as well as more efficient resource usage. They will also be able to quickly organize their applications with the new application folders feature.

I remember a time when GNOME and KDE releases were big deals here. Feels like eons ago, a distant memory from an irrelevant past.

Gnome 3 is my favorite

The first two, three weeks have been a hard time for both my wife and me. The concepts of Gnome 3, how I as an user interact with the desktop environment are not comparable with "classic" desktop environments including Gnome 2, KDE 4, Windows 7 and yes, also Windows 8. Im not that familiar with OS X, as a result I have not mention that one in my list. But these concepts work fine for my wife as well as for me. We both do want to miss them.

With that message a big, big thank you to all people who contributed to Gnome 3.

Greetings,
pica
