Gnome Remember back when GNOME and KDE dominated Linux desktops? Seems like a long time ago, doesn't it? Yet it was only three years ago, in April 2011, that GNOME 3 was released. Its radically redesigned interface shook up everyone. Some eagerly adopted it. Others left GNOME.

In this brief review I take a fresh look at GNOME today, as it's currently distributed in several popular Linux distributions.

Gnome 3.10 is the second release where you start to see the new gnome vision coalesce into something tangible.

The latest 3.12 release is an all round improvement with increased polish.

Unfortunately, 3.12 is a release that will probably be ignored due to distro timings, but 3.14 so far is increasing the coherence, so by the time the next releases of distros start being released, quite a few people may be surprised at how slick and usable Gnome has become.

I can see Gnome eventually regaining its popularity.
