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.

Yuck I hated Gnome 3 until 3.8 came out and now I must say it's fast, it's easy to use and really what it should have been from the beginning.

The Meta/Window key is really great, it makes life very easy and I quickly got used to no minimize. Just use the meta key.

I like some of the new apps but they aren't really usable yet. One has to get 3.12 for that.
