Gnome Yesterday it was announced that GNOME 3.0 is delayed till next year. The extra time has given the Shell Developers some more time to play around with new concepts and they have come up a new mockup. Here are the new mockups.

That looks like Ubuntu Netbook Remix with a search function.

It does, doesn't it? Oddly, neither OSNews nor the linked article say where they found these mockups... I wonder if these are really from the Gnome Shell developers, or are they something someone else has dreamed up as a hybrid of Shell and Ubuntu's Unity?

The panel (on the left) looks like Docky/Gnome Do. The icons in the middle look like UNR or Jolicloud.

Either way, it looks like something that belongs on a Netbook, Tablet, or iPhone. The market is getting saturated with these interfaces.

I switched from KDE to Gnome just the other day because the latest update broke a bunch of components I use, and some others just plain disappeared. I gave it a week to see if they showed back up or started working... didn't work. The reason I switched is because on my DESKTOP PC that I do web design and development on, I want a DESKTOP centered environment. Not something designed for working on one app at once. (like Netbook/Tablet interfaces.)

If the two big players don't start shaping up, I'll probably look at one of the other offerings (Xfce, E17, etc)

So yeah, I wouldn't mind the new shell on my Tablet or Netbook, but not on my workstation.
