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.

Guess most people around here are too young to remember this, but Zeitgeist has some resemblance to NeXTstep's old file management concept. I really enjoyed using it, it's concept really made sense. Glad to see the idea revived nowadays.

Actually, it's not so similar because the columns in Zeitgeist are dates, and not related to the directory structure like the NeXT file viewer.

Furthermore, it's only the UI part and it will probably change.
