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.

What's also sad is that, when an article about GNOME appears, the KDE fanboys have to jump all out of the woodwork and proclaim how much better their favorite environment is. To the KDE zealots: you guys put Apple zealots to shame in your sheer fanaticism, you could really teach them a thing or two. Funny how I don't see a lot of GNOME fanatics jump on the KDE-flaming bandwagon unless provoked by one of you.
As for the changes, I'm not sure what to think. On one hand, I like a lot of GNOME's interface at the moment as it is, but on the other, some of these new ideas really are intriguing. I probably won't end up forming an opinion until I've played with it a bit, I like to have hands-on with a new UI or program before I judge it. I am happy at the removal of obsolete libraries, and hopefully they will also take this chance to really slim down the number of abstraction layers in GNOME itself. They've been moving towards that goal slowly, so I imagine we'll see a much slimmed down GNOME come version 3.0, which would be a very welcome change indeed.
