Gnome GNOME 3, the much talked about next generation GNOME introduces a radical shift from the interface found in GNOME 2.x. Digitizor has a quick visual tour of GNOME 3 in Ubuntu 9.10.

Actually yeah, I know why it bothers me. It's a graphically intensive operation.


Bingo. On any OS other than Linux that would be ok. Mac and Windows have good graphics drivers, and that kind of thing is nothing for a modern card (or even 5 years old). However the graphics driver situation on Linux is still complete shit for anyone that doesn't have an NVidia card (Intel, even though it's supposed to be free and awesome, is still about 5x slower than on Windows on my machines).

If the driver's are to blame, I don't see why that would be the Desktop Environment's fault. I for one can't wait for GNOME 3.

I specifically said it wasn't the DE's fault, but it doesn't make a damn bit of difference. If Gnome 3 relies on graphical power for their interface, and that power is not there because of crappy drivers, then a lot of users are just not going to like it. Technically not their fault, but you have to keep the environment in mind when designing software.
