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.

The old Red Hat 6 of fourteen years ago came with the Enlightenment window manager which implemented edge-flip, and even though it drives you batty at first, in the end I came to depend on it to manage windows in a large virtual display. No "workplace-switcher" to slow you down. Unfortunately that feature has disappeared from a default install of Gnome, and getting it back has become increasingly difficult. Gnome 3 and Unity make it basically unusable, so every machine I run has Gnome 2 in some form or other.
