Gnome Only a few days ago, we ran an article on the future of KDE and GNOME, and which of the two had the brighter future based on their developmental processes. Barely has that discussion ended, or the GNOME engineering team comes with a pretty daunting plan to introduce a fairly massive reworking of the GNOME interface for GNOME 3.0 (2.30). Read on for the details.

Spatial Nautilus?

What about the spatial environment? I don't know how many people use the feature (I suppose many use the default Windows/OSX-like browser interface)--I do, simply because it's the closest you can get to an OS9-like behaviour (the right theme also helps ;) ). Will that still be available? Or will the changes to Metacity be so dramatic that it'll no longer be an option?

You can rest assured that no matter what it'll be an absolute pain in the AS$ to change it. Currently there is no way to change it through nautilus itself...you need to start up gconf.

Bullshit. Edit, Preferences, Behavior, "Always open in browser windows" checkbox. Checked, it's an explorer-like interface, uncheck and it's spacial
But why be bothered with the facts, given your obvious KDE leanings?
