Gnome GNOME hacker Seth Nickell has written a lengthy PDF and accompanying blog post with a number of very interesting ideas for GNOME 3.0. I pondered putting this up on the front page, but since that usually only attracts the "It's not what I'm used to so it sucks"-crowd, I decided to put it up here. Be sure to read the blog post, the PDF, and the comments on the blog post to get the entire picture.

But I personally liked the most their plan of allowing you to just drag a whole workspace into 'Pooper' so you can work on it some other day, with all the window contents and data still intact. It's gonna be such a killer feature.


With the exception of the explicit save function, this is not really something new. I have used this for years, and pretty much have my usage pattern adapted to it. I simply newer close an applications when I still work on stuff, I let the session handling of the desktop take care of it. And it restores the state of my desktops and applications the next time I log in.

One of my PCs at work have one desktop containing a set of Konsole windows, filemanager views, webpages and text files in editors. The application set have been more or less in a permanent state for over 2 years(with countless logouts), but with everything at the ready when I need to work on the project.
