Looks Good

Looks rather good. Clear Looks is a good theme, and it looks as if Eugenia was right, if a little premature.

More integration with Nautilus is a lot better and the enhacemants to the spatial stuff should make it far, far better.

GNOME 2.12 will utilise the latest and greatest in graphics toolkits through GTK+ 2.8. Still in its final stages of testing, GTK+ 2.8 will offer developers features not currently available in any other toolkit.

Well that's inaccurate now that Qt 4 is released and has been for some time, but that aside, we'll have to see how the new GTK and Cairo stacks up.

The new system tools look nice, especially the new services stuff. I don't know how they manage that, but more GUI integration of that stuff really is welcome.
